I wrote slirp bindings, and a helper process that can be used by qemu
I have done some experimentation slowly replacing slirp C code with
rust (https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/slirp/libslirp/issues/3). I
decided to try from scratch as well, using smoltcp. I have
dhcp/udp/tcp working to some extent so far (I keep in mind a future
libslirp compatible ABI, if needed).
