Whenever the module drops a packet, it logs an error message.
Apparently, the kernel uses a statistics mechanism instead (see the STATS functions in http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/include/net/ip.h).
We should see if we ought to do the same.

@ydahhrk ydahhrk First step of issue #57.
Downgraded most logging messages to debug priority because we're
no longer going to bother users with them unless debug is turned
Added stats functions to the packet module.
The code still doesn't compile; I'm only committing because I need
to pay attention to some other stuff for a while.

@ydahhrk ydahhrk Lots of bugfixes to the merge.
Issue #57 is probably 80% done.
ydahhrk commented Jun 24, 2014

Stats functions included, and many error messages have less priority now.

Fixed and collapsed to the master branch; closing.

Reopening, because while the stats module exists, its callers are nowhere to be found. Looks like we had a faulty merge somewhere.

Raising priority, because there is currently no way to know why are packets being discarded unless one compiles with debug activated.
