Hi Alexandre,

thank you. I've created a issue for this work on the Goldelico
bug-tracker. I'd like to invite you to update that issue, if you have
any further findings and/or patches, this way we can keep our work
coordinated and nothing will get lost in old mails or on the Google

As you were working on Replicant 4.2 before, I'd like to ask what the
results of that work had been?
And why did you switch to backport the code to 4.0, instead of
continuing your work on Replicant 4.2?
I think in the long run, moving forward to Replicant 4.2 is the way to go...

Best regards,

PS: I've also created an issue for your work on the Netfilter stuff:
