You mean create a custom sf_pkthdr with new magic number, savefile support etc?

I assume that struct pcap_pkthdr can't be changed without breaking
compatibility.

I noticed that get_pcap_linktype() in dumpcap.c has a lot of code like "if
(linktype == 7)", so I was assuming that using bpf.h DLT_* defines was frowned
upon.

I didn't want to use wtap_wtap_encap_to_pcap_encap() or vice versa in
capture_loop_write_packet_cb() as those calls perform linear searches.

Any suggestions on where I could cache the mapping?

Will fix.
