There don't appear to be, from my experience.  I'm currently running
linux- with openswan-2.4.5rc5, and it's working quite nicely.
I've also successfully used  I'm not sure precisely which
patches you're using, but using the KLIPS stack with NAT-T via the
kernel patches on the openswan.org download page works for me.

This worked for me:

cd /usr/src/linux-
zcat openswan-2.4.5rc5.kernel-2.6-klips.patch.gz | patch -p1
zcat openswan-2.4.5rc5.kernel-2.6-natt.patch.gz | patch -p1

Both patches apply cleanly, and I'm able to compile the kernel without
any problems.

I should note, however, that something in Debian's default kernel
configuration causes compilation to fail.  It wasn't until I removed a
number of extraneous options that I was able to compile cleanly.

Hope this helps.
