OK, I fixed the connlimit extension. Please:
- download recent version of patch-o-matic-ng
- remove "patchlets/connlimit" directory from extracted pom-ng
- run "./runme --download"
- patch & recompile your kernel, as always
- tell me if it works (or not).

Connlimit goes to my external pom-ng repository.
