-------------------------------------

@Robin: You are right. I have already started writing the AF_PACKET plugin for Bro and I can update my broctl patch as well.

> Let's have a support for packet capture with the AF_PACKET sockets in multi worker configuration.
> Bro can use a single worker with af_packet, I have tested and it works, but having a direct support for multi-worker load balancing would allow to avoid the pf_ring for many deployments with the traffic level where DNA / ZC / Myricom / DAG is not required.
