Re: /dev/tap and tcpdump don't go together very well?

This seems to be documented now in bpf(4).

FreeBSD now apparently has an ioctl for this:

     BIOCFEEDBACK    (u_int) Set packet feedback mode.  This allows injected
                     packets to be fed back as input to the interface when
                     output via the interface is successful.  When BPF_D_INOUT
                     direction is set, injected outgoing packet is not
                     returned by BPF to avoid duplication. This flag is ini-
                     tialized to zero by default.
