Description

gre(4) in FreeBSD 10.3 (and 10.2) no longer appears to support the link0/link1/link2 tweaks it used to have for route caching, ECN, and WCCP behavior control.

It was revamped in FreeBSD r274246, which was merged from current last year and is in FreeBSD 10.2 and 10.3:
https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/commit/920800a21fab4e6f4bbb3159edfbd5a9bca22370

It looks like we can remove the checkboxes entirely and the associated backend code.

Remove GRE link flag options from GUI/backend. Keep link1 as it was also used to add an explicit static route, though the GUI previous GUI option name wasn't related to that at all. Updated GUI description to match reality. Ticket #6586
