now that stable/8 (not part of the upcoming 8.2-R) once again has support for
NATM I'd like to remind people of

:: 1) the extra couple of months; this will not prevent the evitable removal
::     yet only defer it.
:: 2) If anyone of you is using (or want to be able to (continue to) use) NATM
::     or can test things, I re-enabled it with most of the code in HEAD and
::     the patch is available for 8,x as well but need to work with somoene
::     to make sure it'll really work.  I am willing to spend more time on it
::     if you send me an email.

So if anyone of you is still using NATM, please follow-up with me to
keep your functionality.  If there is no feedback NATM is still
scheduled for removal.

Thank you.

Subject: svn commit: r218684 - in stable/8/sys: conf netinet

Author: bz
Date: Mon Feb 14 16:54:03 2011
New Revision: 218684

   MFC r216466:

     Bring back (most of) NATM to avoid further bitrot after r186119.
     Keep three lines disabled which I am unsure if they had been used at all.
     This will allow us to seek testers and possibly bring it all back.

     Discussed with:       rwatson
