Kernel issues

During the FC4 development cycle I mistakenly asked for 2.6.12 to be
included because it "had" the ip_conntrack for ipv6. This was based on
something I read. It turns out the person was misquoting. The USAGI
project was promising this for a patch for 2.6.12. It was never included
at least to my knowledge.

My wish list for FC5 includes the following:
TARPIT target for IPTABLES (I think it is already included).

connlimit (and friends) matching for the kernel, this exists in
documentation but has not yet made the mainstream kernel. Help should be
given to get it there and it should be included.

ip6_conntrack  (or whatever it's name is) should be given similar help
and should be included.

Other than that, most of my wishes are ready being addressed. I do think
these are very important for both desktop and server/firewall machines.

Thank you,
