I see that this tree is a clone of:

One issue I've got with that tree, is that it is not usable for any
serious work because of the following:

% git merge-base origin/master origin/svn_stable_8
% echo $?

The whole FreeBSD 8.x branch is on its own. However:

% git merge-base origin/master origin/svn_stable_7

% git show bdad8b50a25980737a8e00047f41fc1e588fc9e5
commit bdad8b50a25980737a8e00047f41fc1e588fc9e5

    For 7.0 make the shared lib "version" '3'.

So something should have gone wrong when the mirror was created with
the 8-STABLE branch as its root commit is:

commit 47c9e1cbe6e19ab62a112f67fa4baf081aa213be
Author: jfv <jfv at ccf9f872-aa2e-dd11-9fc8-001c23d0bc1f>

    This patch seperates the control of header split from LRO (which it
    was previously dependent on), LRO gets turned off when bridging but
    its been found that header split is still a performance win in that case.

    Secondly, there was some interface specific control in stats code that
    has been missing, and a logic error that resulted in bogus reporting.
    Thanks to Manish and John of LineRateSystems for the report and help in
    this code.

    Approved by: re


which should rather be:

commit d4a6bb6e18d2601fe08d76be4610ae4a303574b2

    Whitespace/style tweaking of prev. commit.
