    libalias: Switch to SPLAY trees

    Current data structure is using a hash of unordered lists.  Those
    unordered lists are quite efficient, because the least recently
    inserted entries are most likely to be used again.  In order to avoid
    long search times in other cases, the lists are hashed into many
    buckets.  Unfortunatly a search for a miss needs an exhaustive
    inspection and a careful definition of the hash.

    Splay trees offer a similar feature - almost O(1) for access of the
    least recently used entries), and amortized O(ln(n) - for almost all
    other cases.  Get rid of the hash.

    Now the data structure should able to quickly react to external
    packets without eating CPU cycles for breakfast, preventing a DoS.
