 The partial answer is that it did not work in 3_Stable and still
 does not work.
 So basically I think these patches represent no obvious change.
 They only effect ippool. I can see no reason to think they would
 introduce any recursions. This changed code only gets compiled
 if the flag "options IPFILTER_LOOKUP" gets added to the kernel
 config anyway.
 I pulled my patches and put the clean netbsd-3 build on my home
 network server to test, but when I saw this broke it, I pulled
 back to my patches because I want to keep my protections enabled.
 I am building a vmware test machine up to 3_Stable (3_RC2) right
 now and will update my answer in a few hours if anything seems worse.
