I've updated the trap-any branch (based on the trap-acquire-tracking
branch).  Due to the changes in 5.3.0 (reqids don't identify CHILD_SAs
anymore) no additional reqids are required and no awkward SA deletion is
needed anymore.  So that removes one of the reservations I had about the
previous iteration of the patch.

And with the above patch it is actually already possible to limit the
remote hosts to specific subnets/IPs.  Just set `rightsubnet`
accordingly.  I added a test scenario (ikev2/trap-any) in that branch
that illustrates this (see host dave).

Let me know if that works for you.
