Actually, the more I look at this, the more I think we should just revert
patches I submitted to support old pcap libraries.
I will send a revert patch for now and try to find a better approach later.

So, the patch from Olivier (resolving the conflict on kvargs) and the revert
patch I will send should be enough.
Can you confirm it is working fine for you ?
