  Patrick McHardy has been working on getting those patches ready for 
mainline inclusion lately. He has posted the latest incarnation of his 
patches to the netfilter-devel mailing list recently. (Note however, that 
those patches are for the latest Linux 2.6.15 development branch and not 
for 2.6.14.) You can take a look at the patches in the mailing list 
archive:

  So yes, there's very serious work going on to get those patches in 
mainline (probably in 2.6.16).
