Implement Export PDU for tshark
This patch introduces the "-U tap_name[,filter]" tshark option and is similar to the "Export PDUs as file" option in Wireshark. Wireshark implements this feature by reopening a capture file, applying a tap and finally opening the temporary file. Since tshark knows in advance that a PDU export is needed, it can optimize by not creating the temporary file and perform the export at the first opportunity. This patch splits the opening/tapping functionality from error reporting since tshark does not need a temp file and has no dialogs. The capture file comment is now specified explicitly as there is no "current file" anymore if the tap is running without active file. TODO: - Review whether it is acceptable to overwrite save_file in tshark. - Add documentation (tshark manpage).
