And from time to time I work through all of them, chase people up best I

To me LORs that involve IPFilter are an indication of where we need to
continue work on improving locking within FreeBSD's networking.

I believe that in most places where there is a LOR with IPFilter, you
will also find a LOR for pf/ipfw - or anyone else that dares write (or
attempt to write) an SMP-safe firewall module for FreeBSD.

The work on making FreeBSD's networking SMP safe and worthwhile is not
yet over.
