Forgot to include my code that uses the multiple subnets before ...

skip_packet= 1; /* skip unless is in a homenet */
for (home= homelist; home != NULL; home=home->next) {
   if ((p->iph->ip_dst.s_addr & home->netmask) == home->netaddr) {
     skip_packet= 0;

This doesn't seem that bad to me in terms of efficiency.
