Linux kernel routing does not currently have knowledge of AS numbers.
However, it would be possible use the kernel routing table realms for
storing this information. But the current situation is that the AS number
is only known by routing protocol stack. Routing protocol stack I
currently use is namely GNU Zebra from www.zebra.org. You might want to
take a look on it and co-operate with Zebra mailing list.
