[PATCH] Add TX_RING support to AFPacket DAQ module

If anyone is feeling adventurous or is already running Snort with the AFPacket module in inline mode, I've attached a patch against daq-0.3 which adds support for the PACKET_TX_RING feature found in Linux kernels 2.6.31 and later. It uses a memory mapped ring buffer to send packets and should (in theory) provide a decent inline performance boost over the previous implementation in the AFPacket DAQ module. This change seems to be relatively stable as I have been running it for the past week without any issues.
