I have generated a patch which appears to solve the lock ordering
issues associated with ucred based filtering which results in
hard locks (while mpsafenet=1). 

This patch basically implements a shared locking mechanism.

http://people.freebsd.org/~csjp/ip_fw2.c.1099500281.diff

It would be appriciated if interested parties could download it,
load a large number of rules and try to manipulate (delete/add)
rules under high loads.

Thanks!
