I would like to deprecate ipfw (and dummynet, because it needs ipfw)

Can you please show that pf is as fast as ipfw?

No, can't. As I understand the current answers, we will remove ipfw from the main code path and get a pfil'ed version instead. So this won't affect the speed after all. Besides, if somebody cares about his filtering speed, he should do measurements. I don't have the network, the equipment, nor the filter set to measure speed.
