feel free to send a patch that allows selecting that option (but leaves it disabled by default)

That is a boolean option in the kernel, and as quagga/bgpd packages can be installed on openwrt, how would a user choose to enable that option? By the way I dont know how bigger the kernel is with that option enabled, maybe not too much.

it selects some extra crypto modules and adds some chunks to the ip stack. as far as i know, it is only used in combination with bgp (which is rarely used), so enabling it by default is not an option.
it should be added to config/ similar to how other options are added. that way it can be enabled via top-level menuconfig
