Hi,
I would love if l2tpns had a kernel patch for handling
l2tp data packets,
from looking at the traffic and pps possible on my lvs
load balancer, i think kernel mode handling of data
packets would at least double the performance of l2tpns,

some example urls referencing l2tp kernel patches:

http://www.kvack.org/~bcrl/babylon/babylon-1.6-pre3-bcrl10.tar.gz
demonstrates a patch that has a socket per tunnel.

another:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/openl2tp

demonstrates a patch that has a socket for session.

l2tpns could use a kernel patch for kernel mode
handling of session data packets, updates to byte
counters could happen by polling /proc/l2tpns etc.

Comments?

Cheers,
