Leonardo da Silva and I have been working on adding Netmap support to
Suricata.  The code here is still a work in progress.  The code has
been based on the af-packet support for Suricata and is intended to provide
functionality similar to that provided by af-packet.

This will eventually support both IDS and IPS modes of operation as
does af-packet.  Some testing of the current version of the code has
been done on the IDS mode of operation.  IPS support is still a work
in progress, at this point largely by making edits based on af-packet
source code.  At this point IPS support is not expected to work.

The code lives at https://github.com/decanio/suricata-np/tree/dev-netmap.

At indicated this is still work in progress, but comments are welcome.

Leonardo and I will follow up here as we continue to develop the code.
