As mentioned, Linux kernel starting from kernel version 2.6.35 and later fails to compile with L7 patch applied.

We really need to get it fixed...

    I posted the following patch for kernel 2.6.36 and above to the developers mailing list in December. Unfortunately, it does not seem that this is a very actively maintained package. Follow the first link to retrieve the patch for 2.6.35, and then apply the patch in my post to this patch. After this, l7-filters will compile and run correctly on 2.6.36
