The problem is the huge changeset in the skb for the 2.6.21/22 kernels.
We are likely going to make a cut, because it is becoming impossible
to support all kernels from 2.4 to 2.6.22 with ifdef's due to the massive
skb surgery. So 2.4.x's latest supported kernel will probably be 2.6.18.x,
and openswan 2.5.x will required a late 2.6.x kernel.

Though having said that, openswan 2.5.x needs to be fixed to support

So in short, yes we are aware of the problem, it's not trivial :(
