Sorry, I somehow missed your review request on -hackers, and didn't see
it on the -ipfw list as well.

First, please sort the MAN= entries in Makefile as they were before.

I am somewhat confused as to why you have chosen to add the new
firewall(7) manpage rather than to extend the existing manpages?
IMHO this only creates unnecessary bloat.

For example, the `IPFW KERNEL CONFIGURATION' section is an (almost)
duplicate of the `Kernel Options' in ipfirewall(4) (the latter is
seriously outdated), and it is now required to keep both in sync.
The rest of the firewall(7) manpage fits nicely into the existing
ipfw(8) manpage.

More on makrup later...
