There was some renewed interest "recently" (i.e. last year).  See the
discussion starting at
http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg180282.html

But do note davem's replies in
http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg180401.html
http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg180646.html

Don't put too much into the "fringe facility" comment.  There have been
similar comments on e.g. IPv6, and that went in some time ago :-)

So in short: There is some interest and some people working on this in
a direction which has some hope of mainline integration.
