Re: NPF and PF

One bug, two bad behaviours.  Mention both behaviours.  And if possible,
get a crash dump, put it somewhere semi-permanent, and provide a link to
the crash dump in the PR text.

Trying to load a npf ruleset with tables of thousands of entries
takes _minutes_. In one case I had with tens of thousands of lpm
table entries, 'npf reload' chewed for almost 20 minutes (!!), and
then crashed, leaving the filter in an inoperable state.

Please file a bug report!

Which behavior should be called out as the bug? The crash, or the
fact that it takes minutes to load a ruleset with large tables?
