i would like to propose the following. diffs with tcpdump.org is
keep growing and it is very annoying to maintain two source codebase,
especially when we need to be careful about buffer overrun and other
at this moment major differences are in the following portion.
i will try my best so that we will keep (and bring back to tcpdump.org)
every local additions.
steps i would like to take:
0. remove old source code in src/usr.sbin/tcpdump.
1. import tcpdump source code from tcpdump.org into src/dist/tcpdump.
2. put reachover makefile into src/usr.sbin/tcpdump.
3. we try to keep changes minimal in src/dist/tcpdump (every change must go
back to tcpdump.org).
items that NetBSD is advanced:
- nfs (FHT_NETBSDEB is netbsd-only)
items that tcpdump.org is advanced:
- pppoe decoding
DLT_PPP_ETHER does not seem right to me.
- IPsec ESP decipher
- llc snap
items that i'm not sure which is better:
- SNMP MIB decoding
- iso clns
- token ring
