  When a packet has been reinjected into ipfw(4) after dummynet(4) processing
  we have a non-NULL args.rule. If the same packet later is subject to "tee"
  rule, its original is sent again into ipfw_chk() and it reenters at the same
  rule. This leads to infinite loop and frozen router.
  Assign args.rule to NULL, any time we are going to send packet back to
  ipfw_chk() after a tee rule. This is a temporary workaround, which we
  will leave for RELENG_5. In HEAD we are going to make divert(4) save
  next rule the same way as dummynet(4) does.
