  1. this is one thing for which i am waiting for log time. This will improve ips performance.thanks

  2. I was not able to access this git tree. Looks like its not available any more. I tried patches available, but its not working properly. Please point me to the proper code if available to be tried.

  3. Where is the patch available? What are the kernel versions that can have this patch integrated with?
