Thanks for your interest!  Unfortunately I don't believe that there
has been any development on EBPF for FreeBSD for the past couple of
years.  At this point I don't anticipate seeing EBPF merge into the
project.  So unfortunately I can't really recommend any of the EBPF
projects listed on the wiki as a GSoC project.  If you are interested
in non-EBPF projects, though, I'd definitely recommend that you pursue

Sorry for the bad news,
