I'll take this for a testdrive during a DoS on a testmachine here later
this evening. I doubt it makes any diffrence compared to the old one when
you have virtually no assured entries, just a truckload of unassured ones.
So it's a bit tricky to test in a lab, I need to set up that
sniffermachine on the real internet feed so I get a proper conntrack
table to test with.
