Hi, Jiri Pirko, any progress of extended BPF? :)

I am interesting in 3) much. For my requirements,
it just only need BPF has ability to handle arbitrary
"pre-filled memory area", but not handle both a skb and
such a memory area at same time, so I think that register
pressure should not be become the performance bottleneck

Otherwise, I must construct a fake sk_buff to execute filter
feature, it is ugly, isn't it?

I guess that Nuno Martins's requirements also are similar.

And, I also would like join this project, if you need.
