        Yes, LVS and Netfilter use their own connection tracking

        The same. I have tried to explain it January 2002. If we are
going to implement something like this, then changes in Netfilter
are required too, mostly in the routing usage. LVS has some
requirements for the connection state which are not present in
netfilter. I don't think it is better LVS to move to Netfilter
conntracking. And I still don't have enough time for thinking
on such big changes for LVS ...
