In sys/netinet/ip_compat.h, macro SPLNET() used in ipfilter code is
defined like this:

# if defined(NetBSD1_0) && (NetBSD1_0 > 1)
#  define	SPLNET(x)	x = splsoftnet()
# else
#  if !SOLARIS
#   define	SPLNET(x)	x = splnet()
#   define	SPLX(x)		(void) splx(x)
#  endif
# endif

So, this means that we use splsoftnet only for -current of 1.0 (1.0A,
...) and use splnet for example for 1.2D.  Is this really what
intended to?  I doubt that it was `use splsoftnet in recent NetBSD'...
