Misbehaving proxy arp daemon on bpf

A bpf daemon can crash FreeBSD 10 system if it wrongly behaves.

After analysis seems that a userland process opening a blocking read descriptor
and never reading from it will consume the BPF buffers in kernel eventually
leading to a crash on the system.
This happens with bpf zerocopy enabled/disabled.

Attached is a software used for proxy arp through BPF that caused the
misbehaviour on the system.
Depending on the load, traffic moving through the system this issue could be
reproduced several times a day or even needing up to 4 days to reproduce.
