Add support for NETMAP to Suricata.
Netmap as described here : [[http://info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/netmap/]] is a FreeBSD (currently experimental)
feature allowing high speed access to network interfaces. Suricata can benefit greatly from this.
Netmap has a wrapper library that can be used with libpcap clients (which seem not to work with suricata at the moment),
but a proper native support for netmap should be better.

NETMAP was currently being imported in the FreeBSD -STABLE branches, and a few days ago a experimental Linux port was announced.
The files are at the URL in my previous post.
This looks very interesting for IDS and especially for IPS mode with the ability to do true zero-copy forwarding.

What is the current state of this issue?
Why https://github.com/decanio/suricata-np/tree/dev-netmap-v2.8 was not merged? Is it not finished? Maybe it has problems that can't be solved?
