Re: kern/52074: -current npf map directive broken

Hi Roy !

Don't worry about the panic at all - it is unrelated - that was a side issue I already analyzed and discussed with christos@ and rmind@. Root cause there is currently a semantic problem in NPF regarding naming of dynamic rules.

You also shouldn't be able to send from an address you don't own
(generally - a router has to be able to forward, as distinct from
originate, packets from anywhere of course).
This is what my initial code did.
What I'm more concerned about though is the panic.
I think we should revert xtos's change and solve the panic, as this just
masks over it.
