here are some of my ideas for ipfw changes:

1/ redo locking so that packets do not have to get locks on the 
structure... I have several ideas on this
2/ allow separate firewalls to be used at different parts of the 
network stack (i.e allow multiple taboe sto co-exist)
3/ possibly keeping per CPU stats..
