        FYI, the patch was submitted one year ago (you see from the
version when it was created) to the network maintainers and they
responded. So, if the question is whether they know, the answer is yes.
Alan is not informed directly for this patch but the discussions on the
kernel mail list are public. The need is this feature to be replaced with
another one but there is still no another solution :) It is known that
this feature is not used only from the LVS community but everyone can
read the discussions and to see the different opinions on this issue.
