Network Namespace ARP support

Hi All,

I was looking at the network namespaces implementation for ARP, and I was wondering why the struct net abstraction was done in the core neighbour functions, and not at the struct neigh_table arp_tbl level (i.e. one arp_tbl per namespace)?

One problem I could find with the current implementation is that the "struct neigh_statistics *stats" are global for all namespaces, whereas you might want to see these statistics per namespace.

It would be nice if I could get some insight in some of the design decisions, as I'm new to this area...
