Note it does not support independant module compilation on 2.6.
(You have to patch it into the kernel source)

No, this won't be there until 2.3.
When this will occur depends upon resources.
the 2.6 support for FS, which I did, involved reognizing source code,
not doing anything to it. So, there are no "patches" per-se, other than
to the Makefile. Starting from 2.06 won't get you anything useful -
i.e. no AES, no NAT-T, etc.
so, we are waiting until we have all of those things sorted out before
moving any of the source code around to accomodate 2.6 compilation.
