random ip ids...

I know it's been not just been the default with OpenBSD for a long
while, but they've also been very polemical about the topic at various
cons going way way back.


Is this going to be default with FreeBSD at some point?  Only in front
of 9.x boxes right now, so I don't know if it changed with 10.x or current.

I vaguely remember someone arguing it was set to 0 by default for some
compatibility reason....

fyi: net.inet.ip.random_id=1
