pfctl cannot allocate memory for using spamd w/ Table for CBL

P. Pruett
suggestions?

since upgrading to openbsd 3.8
I noted my spamd was not blocking, looked closer and with me
using the CBL table (huge) trying
spamd-setup gave this response:
   pfctl Cannot allocate memory

The spamd is loading okay so long as I don't use a whopper
table like the CBL,
rsync://rsync.cbl.abuseat.org/cbl/list.txt

I have a gig of memory on the server in question, and it was the
generic i386 kernel....



True on 3.6 and 3.7 I used a kernel compiled with options,
so it could be just the generic kernel...

I'm going to compile a custom kernel on platform and see if it fares
better.   any suggestions on kernel options for large pf Tables?

typically i have added these options to the generic.

OPTION   GATEWAY
OPTION   DUMMY_NOPS
