sure! It can wait. 0004-pfkey.patch to me looks like a contained to patch, 
change one function. So it is easy to test.

My prefrence is small patches, contain to minimal relevent chagnes.
I am happy re-work 0001-pfkey.patch and 0002-pfkey.patch incorprate relevent 
chagnes from your big patch.  If we agree to split up as I proposed.
