OSF/Mach has this for the in-kernel BPF :) The only stupid thing is that
the actual rule compiler is in the kernel - ugh. I think it should be
fairly easy to modify this module to generate insmodable modules (and not
to run in the kernel of course). The compiler is fairly clever: it does
global register allocation and it's more or less portable. I guess you
could get it running in one weekend ;)
