This one here:

diff -Nru a/include/linux/netfilter_arp.h b/include/linux/netfilter_arp.h
--- a/include/linux/netfilter_arp.h 2004-06-07 21:58:09 +02:00
+++ b/include/linux/netfilter_arp.h 2004-06-07 21:58:09 +02:00
@@ -17,4 +17,5 @@
#define NF_ARP_FORWARD 2
#define NF_ARP_NUMHOOKS 3

+static DECLARE_MUTEX(arpt_mutex);
#endif /* __LINUX_ARP_NETFILTER_H */
looks perfectly fucked up. This way every file including netfilter_arp.h
will get it's own copy of arpt_mutex which certainly doesn't help
synchronization.

But in fact I can only see a single file actually using it, that's
arp_tables.c where it was defined previously. What's going on here?
