FC-5 and FC-7 (and FC-8 and F-9 for that matter) are EOL. No one is
working on those kernels anymore.

It's still unresolved, and klips is also affeceted by part of it (the
losing port of the protoport setting)

All klips/userland support is in 2.6.x. You will need to look at hte
ng-patch/ directory for an (older) kernel patch, and port it to the
newer kernels. The iproute2 patches should no longer be needed, but
verify the updown script uses the newer style iproute fwmask.
