May I ask what are the problems related to 5.2 ?
If I understand correctly, ipfw and dummynet should be quite similar,
and the same should be true for the other userspace processes.
I'm asking because I was going to start a personal port to 5.2
to see how well it could perform, but perhaps I should ask who
has done it already.
