Re: PATCH: more compact ac-bnfa trans list

Thanks for submitting the patch.  It certainly looks interesting.  I'm going
to bug this internally so it can fall into the standard development cycle.

Do you have any supporting data I can add to this?

This patch reduces the size of the ac-bnfa matcher's compact trans list by
about 25% (with the standard snort ruleset) by storing the state number for
match states only.

In my tests it makes no measurable difference to matching speed.
