Re: npf bug(?)

Well, the question is do you need it? I.e. why don't you let the v4
traffic flow through npf? Is it a performance issue or doesn't npf
do reassembly correctly?

I'm not sure if the reassembling works properly. After a few hours the statistics showed over 7000 failed reassembly but only 1296 fragments with 1104 reassembled. I find these numbers unusual. I also know no way to check if the reassembly works correctly. So I would like to disable packet reassembly.

Special, but we can consider adding the functionality in a more general
way if it is needed.
