I don't really have a patch ready as such, just (code fragments in) a
modified klh10. But since that is probably doing much the same as SIMH,
it should not be difficult to adapt. If/when I have time, you know the
problem :-)

If that should work it would only need some additions to the
documentation. It would use BPF on the tap then, I'd expect; hopefully
that would work.

My code will use a pre-existing tap device without messing with it (the
user has to specify a device name to use, I think simh is similar). So
you could set it up to do routing, for instance, if you like, instead of
the default unrouted bridge mode.
