Hey guys,

I know a couple of you are running PF_RING in a high speed environment.
The attached patch means to improve it's performance. It adds a new
option called "pfring.threads" that controls the number of reader
threads the pfring code uses. I've tested (lightly) with 1, 4 and 8
which all worked fine. There are some more improvements, including the
removal of one memcpy per packet...

The patch is against the current git master. Looking forward to any
