On a slight tangent.  I ran VIMAGE kernels vs. non VIMAGE kernels for 
both a VANILLA kernel
and a PF kernel (PF on but no rules) as a quick smoke test today.  The 
raw forwarding performance
was unchanged between kernels with and without VIMAGE on a 10G based 
system in the Sentex lab
(lion1).  I will be doing a bit more work in this area and will then put 
up some results in my
netperf github repo.

The tests are easy enough to run if you have 3 systems, and Conductor 
installed.  The source, sink
and dut config files are all there to be updated and tried.
