It is. We have not released it as seperate patches recently. The 2.6
kernel is a moving target and creating these patches that work "as many
kernel sources as possible" is a manual process that is quite an art to
do. By far the easiest is always to run 'make module module_install'
and build klips as a module, instead of patching it into the kernel
source. Especially now you need no more nat-t patch for kernewls >=

We're close to releasing openswan 2.6.22, but are looking into some
KLIPS issues still, specifically a fix that seems to be causing
other issues (bug https://bugs.xelerance.com/issues/1023)
