(i have not been following the thread, so general comment)
these days libpcap/tcpdump on various platforms diverged too much so
it is sometimes not trivial to bring things back to tcpdump.org.
(even if something is an improvement on a platform, it may be a bad
thing for other pltaforms/may conflict with other platforms)
