with PF in tree, the size of certain mbuf parts has changed. You have to
fully rebuild your kernel and all third-party modules, otherwise
you might hit some corruptions.
The PF module still has a slight problem, it doesn't destory the memory
zone it uses (because there's currently no API for that). It doesn't
affect static build kernels or those which don't unload pf.ko.
What needs to be included in the kernel for a static build?
