--
The way heuristic dissection was handled by the openSAFETY plugin, could lead
to out-of-memory problems with large files (>50.000 packets). The new version
does not use ep_alloc anymore, but a static boolean instead.

Also, the code registering for the SercosIII dissector got simplified, as the
SercosIII dissector is no longer a plugin.
