*) leds - inverted modem signal trigger, now it will trigger when the signal
level rises above the treshold;
*) ipsec - added sha256 and sha512 support;
*) ipsec - proposal defaults changed to aes-128 and sha1 for both phase1 and pha
*) certificate - support ip, dns and email subject alternative names;

uses protocol filter;

*) disabling/enabling ethernet ports did not work properly on CCRs,
could cause port flapping;
*) fixed port flapping on CCR - could happen when having other than
only-hardware-queue interface queue.
Note that having other interface queue than only-hardware-queue
dramatically reduces performace, so should be avoided if possible;
