This series cleans up a few things around packet filtering.  I've probably
gone a little overboard on breaking up patches, if we want to avoid bumping
the save version_id so much, these could be mostly lumped together.  The
main features here are more efficient handling of the filtering between
unicast and multicast, better overflow tracking, adding more RX modes,
and increasing the size of the filter table and control queue depth.

I took the reserved version_id 7 for vnet header support into consideration
on the first patch.  I think we should be able to safely add the guts later
with the placeholder.  If there are other RX mode controls we should add,
let me know, now would be a good time to round out any other flags we can
think of.  Thanks,
