The ipvs 0.9.7 tar ball is available on the LVS website. The ChangeLog
is as follows:

IP Virtual Server Netfilter module - Version 0.9.7 - November 23, 2001

        * Changed ip_vs_skb_cow to call pskb_expand_head, instead of
        pskb_copy, then allocation of a new sk_buff can be avoided, it is
        faster when sk_buff is cloned. It is only effective for VS/NAT.

        * Added the macro IP_VS_DBG_RL that calls net_ratelimit() to limit
        debugging information. It is now used to guard debugging messages
        about transmission error. And, added the IP_VS_ERR_RL to guard
        error messages.

        * Fixed up the SET/GET command overlapping problem in the libipvs,
        and added more error messages into ipvs_strerror.

        * Changed all the function calls in the ipvs helpers to pass the
        pointer of skb, instead of the pointer of pointer of skb, because
        the skb will never be reallocated in the helpers now.

        * Tidy up ipvsadm code a little bit.

        * Julian and I added the sanity check in VS/DR and VS/TUN
        transmitters to checksum iphdr if the skb is nonlinear. Changed
        the iphdr checksum update in the ip_vs_in_icmp, ip_vs_out_icmp and
        ip_vs_forward_icmp. And, Julian has done a lot of testing on
        fragments for this release. Thank Julian.

As always, bugreports, fixes, comments and suggestions are welcome.
