Sorry, I misunderstood.

ip6_tables ports for x_tables matches and targets should ideally already
use the xt_ structures and constants. If you send a patch for tcpmss
I'll happily add it to SVN.

BTW, Yasuyuki, whats the current state of your x_tables userspace
patches? I recall they we're almost finished when you posted them
a couple of month ago.
