this patch introduces the ERFII support into wireshark

Build Information:
Paste the COMPLETE build information from "Help->About Wireshark", "wireshark
-v", or "tshark -v".
The Endace record format (ERF) has been updated to support extension
headers. Extension headers are a way to extend the traditional ERF
records and are used to add information to the packet to be
transported to the host.

Without proper extension header support wireshark is not able to open
.erf capture files containing headers with extensions.

This patch introduces the support for the extension headers defined at
this time (Classification, InterceptID and RawLink) so that wireshark
can open .erf files even with extensions and dissect extensions if
they are present.

This patch also introduces the support for new ERF header types

The introduction of those features required changes in the wiretap
code (erf.c and libpcap.c) in order to read the extension headers and
remove them from the packet size. The erf dissector has been modified
in order to deal with extensions. At the moment only 8 extensions are
dissected (and shown), but the user receives a message throught the
expert window every time more than 8 extensions are present.

The patch has been tested width real erf traces and the results compared 
with other internal tools.
