I've been using pf and pflogd enabled kernels and pf for about a year on both i386 amd64 systems, and havent see any problem... though i have simple pf rules.

As an lkm(4), however, pf works well. To enable the pf LKM at bootup--without having to recompile the kernel--add it to /etc/lkm.conf, e.g.: /usr/lkm/pf.o - - - - - and ensure LKMs are enabled in /etc/rc.conf: lkm=YES Or, with a GENERIC kernel, I think you can just issue the command modload /usr/lkm/pf.o and make it instantly available, even on an up-and-running system.Also add: lkm=YES pf=YES to rc.conf I've been running this setup for the past two years.
