IPFilter code merge

Solaris firewall will see the up-to-date features in open source IPFilter soon

  IPFilter is the a mature and robust firewall traditionally popular on BSD like systems, though it is a mutliple-OS product. With the release of Solaris 10, IPFilter is the default firewall instead of the previous SunScreen, However, it is based on the open source ip_fil4.0.x, which was available at the time when the Solaris networking team was evaluating/choosing the firewall and then tuning it against the Solaris operating environment.

  With time, the open source IPFilter has evolved much and now ip_fil4.1.8 is available. We are planning a bidirectional code merge project to update the Solaris IPFilter on ip_fil4.1.8. Additionally the open source community can benefit from our work too in that quite a few bug fixes, several of which are pretty critical, and one or two features, say, IPv6 enabled ippool will be integrated into the open source version.
