Re: source limit
i suggest to implement in kernel. no 'kill states/modify rules' needed .
it is not too complex to do it in kernel. (500 lines for TCP source limit is
make a flowlimit_check hook before 'create states code' in pf_test_tcp().
don't create any states in pf_test_tcp() if the limitation of the source
reach the maximum value.
you needed to increase or decrease the limit counter of the source address
if the related TCP state enter ESTABLISHED state or CLOSED/FIN_WAIT state.
