I don't see why this should be pushed into the 5.3 *security* branch.  I 
certainly regret that I didn't put it into RELENG_5_3 before the release was 
cut, but with 5.4 out and well, I'm of the opinion that this is water under 
the bridge.

As a general note to all FreeBSD pf users: It's not a bad idea to follow 
RELENG_5 in [sys/]contrib/pf to get all the fixes.  Even when you are 
tracking a release in the rest of your tree.

WRT the errata page: yes, please send a doc-pr.
