Thank you for the link. Seems to simply be an abstraction over the existing
filters so it is safe for me to upgrade to v2.0 :)
Since we are on the subject, are you aware of any filters on 82599 or
Fortville that may provide subnet filtering(I can specify something like
192.168.0.0/16 instead of host addresses)? What about flow director
