In order to do it, we should specify 'fake mbuf' and assign a mbuf type
for it. It would be:
- the contents is volatile and cannot be refered after returning
- the data buffer is read only,
# Should it be whole mbuf including mbuf header is read only?
- cannot be freed
After thinking these tricks, I'd rather prefer adding new API to bpf,
void bpf_mtap2(caddr_t bpf, caddr_t hdr, int hdrlen, struct mbuf *m);
# sorry that I don't have ability in naming.
Is there any place other than bpf where 'fake mbuf' is used?
