Hi!
I have a big number of IPv4 5-tuple rules, every rule corresponds to some
action. I need to find all matched rules and perform all tied actions.
The search time greatly affects overall system performance, so I can't just
scan all rules. ACL is based on multi-bit tries and provides great
performance, so I'm looking for nearly the same performance with the
ability to find all matches within a single request.
