Thanks, two problems:
1) Please layout the new skbuff.h structure changes more
intelligently. Currently the netfilter stuff is:
and this wastes a lot of space on 64-bitters.
2) There is no way I'm amicable to exporting __tcp_v4_lookup()
and friends to modules.
Are you absolutely sure that the existing scheme cannot
work properly? I'm talking about relying upon skb->sk
So what I think I'll do is merge in all the changes other
than the ipt_owner.c change by hand into a tree I'll push
to Linus, I'll also fix the layout ordering problem which
I mentioned above in #1
But something has to be done about the ipt_owner.c change, it
isn't going in as-is.
