Hi,

After looking at the code (and honestly its hard to work with it as it
has no documentation at all), I think I don't need any changes in my
patch.

Here is the latest version for I use with the above commit applied (it
is in mainline now).

commit 7da91d68d78b6a44ba6337be3b29b22ba2909b9e

    NET: IPV4: ARP: allow to invalidate specific ARP entries
    
    IPv4 over firewire needs to be able to remove ARP entries
    from the ARP cache that belong to nodes that are removed, because
    IPv4 over firewire uses ARP packets for private information
    about nodes.
    
    This information becomes invalid as soon as node drops
    off the bus and when it reconnects, its only possible
    to start takling to is after it responded to an ARP packet.
    But ARP cache prevents such packets from being sent.
