Would it be possible to add some hardware support to it? Many network
SoCs do have some hardware network engine which supports NAT and some
similar easy stuff in hardware. This would be a second step after the
normal fastpath stuff would be integrated in OpenWrt and working. It
would be very helpful to have some generic layer to control some
hardware network support engine.
