state of packet forwarding in FreeBSD?

Responding to the thread as a whole: another alternative is the FLOWTABLE
kernel option.  I added route and link-layer caching for endpoints (TCP and
UDP), which makes the FLOWTABLE option less useful (or undesirable) there,
but FLOWTABLE adds route caching for packet forwarding as well.  I’d suggest
testing that also.
