I've been using FreeS/WAN on a number of firewalls for a couple of
years. I've migrated a few of them to Openswan, and I'm getting some
output from "ipsec whack --status" that I'm unfamiliar with.

What does the lines below mean? (All the hosts responds to ping from
their local firewall).

000 -6-> => %hold 0    %acquire-netlink
000 -1-> => %hold 0    %acquire-netlink

I'm using Openswan Openswan U2.1.5rc1/K2.6.9 in one end of the
connection, and FreeS/WAN 1.9 on the other side. OE is disabled.
