It has some carp related code on the input/output path. But obviously
I didn't find it affects performance at all. I have enabled CARP on
all of my boxes.
DragonFly's carp's IPv6 support is broken (ever since the initial
import). IPv4 is well supported.
Well, I don't think it will hurt to put carp into GENERIC kernel.

It will have to be built into kernel.
