See the changes file, but not really things related to RHEL kernels.

Really? You made an ipsec kernel module for that? Without changing any source
code? That's new to me. 
Hmm, indeed. It seems to be working on the rhel3 i have with kernel 2.4.21-9.EL
for openswan-2.2.0. And it indeed gives an error for 2.3.0.

I'll see if we can fix this.
