Feature #308441, revision 2
Title: Use ip_set kernel option

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Don Hughes (dehughes)

Compile RT kernel with the ip_set netfilter option, and include the
ipset module in the distribution.
The ipset module ( ) can be very useful in
building firewalls for large networks.  It needs the ip_set kernel

table with a very large number of entries which can have a significant
performance impact. ipset can be used to build much more eficient
lookup tables, improving performance.

+ Reword this request: include "xtables-addons" (contains ipset already,
+ and no kernel recompile is needed). SRPM is in
