Minimally, to get iptables from cvs to compile against a recent kernel,
you need the reject-enhancements patch and the sparc-ppc-aling patch.
If you really want the dropped table stuff as well, use the dropped_table
branch in cvs, which has a working kernel patch
(patch-test3-pre4-dropped-table -- for some reason, cvsweb only displays
it in the Attic) and a suitably updated iptables.
