[PATCH] IPV4: Correct rp_filter help text.
As mentioned in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5015 The helptext implies that this is on by default. This may be true on some distros (Fedora/RHEL have it enabled in /etc/sysctl.conf), but the kernel defaults to it off. Signed-off-by: Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
