[Swan-dev] KLIPS crashes after kernel update

after upgrading from kernel 3.4.65 to 3.4.66 I experienced
crashes in the KLIPS function ipsec_xmit_ipip().

I narrowed the problem down to an API change in the function

static inline void ip_select_ident(struct iphdr *iph, struct dst_entry *dst,
        struct sock *sk)

static inline void ip_select_ident(struct sk_buff *skb, struct dst_entry *dst,
        struct sock *sk)

This function is referencd in linux/include/libreswan/ipsec_param2.h.

After I changed the first parameter there, the crashes were gone.

In openswan, there is some logic to work across different kernel versions,
but I can't think of a simple way to fix this.
I also don't know which other versions between 3.4 and 3.11 are affected.
