I've imported pf from OpenBSD 3.7 into NetBSD -current.

This brings us the following new features:

* Support limiting TCP connections by establishment rate, automatically
  adding flooding IP addresses to tables and flushing states
  (max-src-conn-rate, overload <table>, flush global).
* Improved functionality of tags (tag and tagged for translation rules,
  tagging of all packets matching state entries).
* Improved diagnostics (error messages and additional counters from pfctl -si).
* New keyword set skip on to skip filtering on arbitrary interfaces,
  like loopback.
* Several bugfixes improving stability.

If you notice any problems, please send a problem report with the
send-pr(1) tool.
