[Bro] RHEL7 and AF_PACKET

I have a bug report with RH. It is being worked on. It MAY make it into
7.4. The solution from RH is to use the elrepo kernel. I haven't been back
to work yet, but I may be getting a test kernel to work with to help get
this into the main branch earlier than 7.4. Per RH, the permanent fix isn't
that bad, it just touches on a bunch of things at once making it
undesireable to push into production immediately.
