Thanks for taking a look Christoph

We shouldn't, but we may want to add a CRC and copy routine.

Yes, and along with it the last use of the BSD TAILQ macros. Just
before Rob set up the open repos I finished converting most of those to
list_head, the only one left is in the sa_event mechanism. Rather than
convert it I'd like to replace the use of sa_event with notifier call
chains. I just need to finish auditing the use to make sure the
differences won't cause unexpected problems.

After than and unwrapping kernel functions, I think the only thing left
before completly removing libsa is to open code the state machines.

Similarly I think net_types.h need to go.
