#524: Bro fuzz testing

 As part of Bro's regular testing we should probably also to some fuzzing.

 Good starting points might be:
  * http://wiki.wireshark.org/FuzzTesting
  * http://code.google.com/p/capouik/ (this one maybe not so much)

 The wireshark tools can probably be used with very little modification.

 However, one worthwhile addition might be to make the tools preserve the
 first n bytes of a packet and then start the fuzzing afterwards (e.g., to
 only fuzz after the IP header or such).

 (Not sure whether this should be milestone 1.6 or 1.7)
