Avoid the overhead of acquiring a (read) RULES lock when processing the
We can get away with that because when rules are modified they're staged
in V_pf_keth_inactive. We take care to ensure the swap to V_pf_keth is
atomic, so that pf_test_eth_rule() always sees either the old rules, or
the new ruleset.
We need to take care not to delete the old ruleset until we're sure no
pf_test_eth_rule() is still running with those. We accomplish that by
using NET_EPOCH_CALL() to actually free the old rules.
