I have done testing on a Debian-based UML session running without 
any problems. I did have to apply a patch to the UML kernel to export the 
memcpy() symbol properly, and possibly fix a very minor compile problem. 
(Been awhile, I don't remember for sure.)

With current 2.6 UML's, be sure to disable 'HIGHMEM' in the kernel - if 
you have it enabled, it will not compile.

Do you have the scripts available to set up a 2.6-based UML testing 
environment for Openswan? If so, I'll see what I can do to get them 
working with or one of the 2.6.9-pre's. Apparently, 2.6.9 is going 
to work in UML without any patches!
