  It is possible for bpf to return a length such that:
          length != BPF_WORDALIGN(length)
  This meeans that it is possible for this to be true:
          interface->rbuf_offset > interface->rbuf_len
  Handle this case in the test for running out of packets.  While
  OpenBSD's solution of setting interface->rbuf_len to
  BPF_WORDALIGN(length) is safe due to the size of the buffer, I think
  this solution results in less hidden assumptions.
  This should fix the problem of dhclient running away and consuming 100%
