OpenBSD errata, Mar 9, 2017

Prevent integer overflow in PF when calculating the adaptive timeout.

Mainly states of established TCP connections whould be affected
resulting in immediate state removal once the numer of states is
bigger than adaptive.start.

Disabling adative timeouts with
  set timeout { adaptive.start 0, adaptive.end 0 }
is a workaround to avoid this bug.
