SubjectRe: 2.1.12 & routing
Date

I am still having problems with IPv4 forwarding in 2.1.14. Removing
the snooping patch cures the problem. Am I doing something totally
weird? If you want my .config file, it's available at

http://greathan.apana.org.au/~herbert/config

The symptom of the problem is that packets seem to be lost when
forwarded. For instance, pinging would result in a loss rate of
~50%. The two interfaces in question are eth0 (SMC ultra) and
PPP.

Here's the patch that seems to have caused this.
