I can't get this to compile in RELENG_7 or RELENG_7_2.

It stops at a missing file: sys/net/if_llatbl.h that doesn't exist in 7.x.

I've downloaded RELENG_8 and it's there, so must I assume this is for 8 only?

Isn't there a sys/net/if_llatbl.h for RELENG_7 or RELENG_7_2?

If this is true, I'll stick to Juergen patch for a little longer. I hope to 
find a way to keep both (tap/VBoxNetFlt) in VBox. The tap patch works 
flawlesly and the tap device is extremely flexible to have around, specially 
to do firewall/QoS to control traffic to/from the VMs, IN the host itself 
(net.link.bridge.ipfw).
