[Snort-devel] Stream 4 Question

I know that there is talk of making the evasion alerting configurable
like the decoder alerting but I have no idea where that is at the
moment.  Maybe we will see it in stream5.  If you just want a quick
and dirty hack to disable alerting on RST's from stream4 I have
included a diff that will do that for you.  All it does is comment out
the code that adds the STREAM4_EVASIVE_RST event to the snort event
queue in spp_stream4.c.
