Task #4796

Updated by Victor Julien 11 months ago

The af-packet code supports 3 main modes of capture: 
 - non-mmap'd with tpacket-v1 
 - mmap with tpacket-v2 
 - mmap with tpacket-v3 

 I think the first can safely be removed. If ppl don't care about performance they can fall back to using @--pcap@ support. 

 TPACKET_V2 was introduced into the linux kernel in 2008, with some 2.6 kernel version. I think we can assume all supported systems to have at least v2.
