Can we put PFIL_HOOKS in the GENERIC kernel config, so a person doesn't have 
to recompile the kernel to use IPFilter - like it was back in later versions 
of 4.x?

It seems kind of silly to have the default 5.x install come with a ipfilter 
kld module sitting there, a knob that can be used in rc.conf to enable it - 
but it can't be used without jumping through more hoops.
