[Bcc to -stable as relevant there]

As the subject says, the latest patches to run ipfw2 on -stable are at

They rely on the code that I have just committed to -stable.
Once you have patched your source tree, you need to add

	options	IPFW2

to your kernel config file to have the new functionality available,
otherwise you will still use the old ipfw code.

You also need to recompile /sbin/ipfw.

Note that this patch *does not* handle libalias.

(For the curious, ipfw2 is a nickname for the new firewall code
which is in -current.  It is much faster and more flexible than the
old one, and implements the old ipfw syntax as a subset, so your
existing configuration files should work unmodified -- and if they
don't, please report the rule(s) where it chokes so i can fix that).
