I'll be working on those patches, and BPF as well, during the next week,
so they might change.

Support for wireless extensions and multicasting peers will just need
an extension to this patch.

Yup. I'll have a look at how multicasting peers are handled on Linux to
add it to the patch.

Btw, I am curious about the BPF work, can you give us more details (if
you want, of course ;-).

Well, as I wrote on debian-hurd, I've made a patch to fix Mach BPF
support, and Richard and Guillaume Libersat are working on a BPF
translator (that implements /dev/bpf). Guillaume is also working on
net_io and on the glue code so that we can catch outgoing packets as
well with BPF & so on.

The translator mostly works, and so does Mach BPF (you can catch packets
with tcpdump(1) and so on).

See you in FOSDEM!
