:-) Unfortunately I did not find them before. I believe we need in offical FreeBSD documention
a link list to users patch directories. ;-)

Fine. Do you believe, that this functionality can go into FreeBSD sources?

Hm, interesting question. *I* did not bring the NIC into promisc mode, but it seems to be. For
PPPoE I use a vlan interface, and parent and sibling are marked PROMISC. I don't know,
where it comes from: dhcpd, rtadvd, ...?
1. My patch may not work, because it may require PROMISC mode. I will test this.
2. Should we create a patch for mpd? (See discussion on freebsd-net).
Thanks for your answer. Regards,
