tried, does not work:
ip_vs_conn.c: In function `ip_vs_tunnel_xmit':
ip_vs_conn.c:982: too few arguments to function `ip_select_ident' 

In kernel 2.4.4, the function ip_select_ident() has 3 arguments,
while in previous kernels it had only two.

It is defined as:
include/net/ip.h:static inline void ip_select_ident(struct iphdr *iph,
struct dst_entry *dst, struct sock *sk)

There is also 
include/net/ip.h:extern void __ip_select_ident(struct iphdr *iph, struct
dst_entry *dst); 

It corresponds to the previous definition of ip_select_ident().

It seems that in ipvs-0.2.11 there is only one change
required:   ip_select_ident(iph, &rt->u.dst); 
ip_vs_conn.c:983:   __ip_select_ident(iph, &rt->u.dst);

Now kernel 2.4.4 compiled.
Whether it runs I cannot test during the weekend because my director box
is at the office, while I am at home, and I do not dare rebooting a new
kernel from remote, because I can't do anything if the boot hangs.
