Phew, not that I am happy to pass my troubles to others or anything ;)

Okay, so custom kernels are within my skill set, but I don't really want
to be creating a new custom kernel for every firewall I have under my
thumb. Pretty sure one of the happiest days in my computing career was
finding linux-image in the apt repos. Is there an immediate workaround
short of installing an older version? can I change the _stackmanager.in
file to look for this /proc/sys/net/core/xfrm_acq_expires file instead?
or will that just move me to the next problem?
