I'd like to discuss the string matching ematch, I don't care about the
algorithm used but rather whether to make it stateful, match over
fragments, etc. I attached a simple stateless string matching ematch
using the Knuth-Morris-Pratt algorithm as a starting point.
I've posted something similar after christmas in netfilter-devel.
It's fragment aware, actually my implementation uses boyer-moore to look
for matches in the payload, and it uses brute force together with
Rusty's skb_iter stuff to look for matches on the edges. The worst case
is not that bad for small patterns. Anyway I'm still looking for
alternatives solutions. BTW, Harald Welte is also interested in this stuff.
I'll give it more spins these days since I've got some spare time. I'll
also have a look at your work. I think that we could join efforts and
push something good, thoughts?
