I just did the same upgrade last night, and am experiencing similar
troubles. ("block in quick log on dc0" isn't actually blocking
anything.) Someone on freebsd-net just noticed this as well:

Darren Reed MFCed IPFilter 3.4.35 in early July, and I don't think
that ipfilter was updated completely in both of the relevant places
(src/contrib/ipfilter and src/sys/contrib/ipfilter). If you diff
the files that exist in both locations, there are some troubling
differences, especially the missing member of the qif structure in
ip_compat.h, etc.

I'm seeing the same problem that the freebsd-net poster did:

root at lair:~# ipf -V
ipf: IP Filter: v3.4.31 (336)
Kernel: IP Filter: v3.4.35

That's with a fresh checkout of RELENG_4, and an empty /usr/obj.

I've sent an error report to Darren Reed.
