No, no other methods to work around in current implementation, because I
haven't thought to combine UDP and TCP for persitent service before. :)

For fwmark-based virtual service, I don't want to touch the user space
program, it is good to use a const protocol value, then the TCP and UDP
service can be combiled together as persistent service. The template for
fwmark-based service can be as follows:
IPPROTO_IP, <cip, 0, vip, 0, rip, 0>
It is a superset. Users can use the ipchains to specified whether the
fwmark-based service is tcp/udp, or both. So, there is no need to touch
the ipvsadm.c progarm.
