| Things in linux/net/ipsec are typically shared between userland and
| kernel. Does this affect KLIPS in any way?

A tiny bit: the (one-line) function will be loaded as part of addrtot.o.  
It currently isn't used.  But it would work if it were used.  I guess that 
there is a slight chance that the name "ipstr" is already taken in the 

I've done a "make module" without any problem.

So I think all is OK.

The kernel code seems to use inet_addrtot(), not addrtot().  That is still 
part of addrtot.o.

It looks as if the kernel coded could be simplified by adding some 
wrappers for addrtoa/inet_addrtot and subnettoa/subnet6toa.
