	* zebra.h: Add WANT_OSPF_WRITE_FRAGMENT for ospfd
	  to try to fragment oversized packets. Enabled only for Linux.
	  Add HAVE_IP_HDRINCL_BSD_ORDER to define struct ip byte order,
	  to consolidate various ad-hoc platform defines for same thing.

+ * OSPF Fragmentation / fragmented writes
+ *
+ * ospfd can support writing fragmented packets, for cases where
+ * kernel will not fragment IP_HDRINCL and/or multicast destined
+ * packets (ie TTBOMK all kernels, BSD, SunOS, Linux). However,
+ * SunOS, probably BSD too, clobber the user supplied IP ID and IP
+ * flags fields, hence user-space fragmentation will not work.
+ * Only Linux is known to leave IP header unmolested.
+ * Further, fragmentation really should be done the kernel, which already
+ * supports it, and which avoids nasty IP ID state problems.
+ *
+ * Fragmentation of OSPF packets can be required on networks with router
+ * with many many interfaces active in one area, or on networks with links
+ * with low MTUs.
