This is actually what eth-filter does. I have improved it by making
fsysopts work, to update the filter on the fly.

Now that we use netdde for driving network boards, adding a firewalling
layer should be nice & easy: it's a matter of putting a translator on
e.g. /dev/eth0-firewalled, which is a mere relay of /dev/eth0, with a
BPF filter.
