Thanks, that's the kind of thing I was worried about. Any thoughts on
how to mark the pflog interface as a virtual interface that shouldn't be
considered for max MTU calculations? Looks like the IFF_* flags field is
full currently although it is a short so could be expanded to a long and
add a new flag type, but that would be rather a large change to solve
this small issue.
