The inexact list exists to handle prefixed input keys.

At the time that I wrote all of the control plane hash table
stuff, configurations I could find consisted of:

1) Entires with non-prefixed keys, which are easy to hash.
The number of entries could be large (e.g. cell phone

2) A very small number of prefixed policies.

So hashing, when possible, falling back to the linked list
for prefixed stuff.

Beforehand we only had the linked list :-)
