Crossbow link protection attribute in Solaris Nevada

Eric Cheng recently integrated two interesting new features into Solaris Nevada, the Solaris.Next development gate:

1. Link protection -

this allows an administrator to prevent certain types of spoofed packets from being sent from a link. This is typically used in virtual environments (zones/domU) where individual domains can't be trusted to behave properly. In this phase, we deliver support for anti-spoofing of IP addresses (v4 only), mac addresses, and non-IP l2 frames.

2. flowadm remote_port attribute -

this allows flows to created with the 'remote_port' attribute. A flow is typically used for enforcing resource controls (e.g. bandwidth limit) on the type of traffic described by the flow.
