The problem is that I cannot find the bug that is causing the module
not to work with recent kernels. I know it has something to do with
packet fragmentation, but I'm not sure exactly what. (I am appending a
source route to each packet, thus often breaking the MTU. This is why
packet fragmentation is an issue).
The module is for my thesis, so it does not matter if it only works
with an older kernel.
