I do not know what those patches are. They are most likely not needed.

Depends on whether you prefer klips or netkey. You can try netkey first,
since that doesn't take any extra steps, and if you get problems, switch
to klips. In general klips seems to work better with roadwarriors and
mtu issues, but for static tunnels both klips and netkey would equally well.
