commit 61d5f8adfaee228bbb2284f401c07a816085f14e

    Add the "TCP Blackbox Recorder"
    which we discussed at the developer summits at BSDCan and BSDCam in 2017.
    The TCP Blackbox Recorder allows you to capture events on a TCP connection
    in a ring buffer. It stores metadata with the event. It optionally stores
    the TCP header associated with an event (if the event is associated with a
    packet) and also optionally stores information on the sockets.
    It supports setting a log ID on a TCP connection and using this to correlate
    multiple connections that share a common log ID.
    You can log connections in different modes. If you are doing a coordinated
    test with a particular connection, you may tell the system to put it in
    mode 4 (continuous dump). Or, if you just want to monitor for errors, you
    can put it in mode 1 (ring buffer) and dump all the ring buffers associated
    with the connection ID when we receive an error signal for that connection
    ID. You can set a default mode that will be applied to a particular ratio
    of incoming connections. You can also manually set a mode using a socket
    This commit includes only basic probes. rrs@ has added quite an abundance
    of probes in his TCP development work. He plans to commit those soon.
    There are user-space programs which we plan to commit as ports. These read
    the data from the log device and output pcapng files, and then let you
    analyze the data (and metadata) in the pcapng files.
