[c-nsp] Cat5000 and BGP

Talking about cat5k, I don't think you would be able to run full BGP feeds
with RSM, as the maximum memory is only 128M.

I understand that currently full feed BGP Cisco
routers suffer from the "per minute BGP scanner CPU
hog" symptom which translates to occasional high
latency when pinging the router.

If the router is to run in MLS mode with the Cat5k,
would this high latency symtom be elevated?
