I would remove the code.
The change to libpcap was made years ago. It won't break the really old system and would make it easier for bro install an new linux systems - you won't have to change the code by hand!

Would it make sense to just remove the linux specific code? Is anyone
running older Linux distros for their analyzers?
Based on one of the links in the ticket, it looks like Debian updated
their libpcap and got rid of this issue in 2005.
