    People had been complaining about a lack of testing prior to the final
    release of a kernel.

    If this was meant serious, we should try hard to fix all regressions
    reported by people who do test -rc and -git kernels.

    As the subject says, this is not a post-2.6.14 regression.

    Besides this, Jens (Cc'ed) sent a patch for it:

    Was there a reason why it wasn't applied?

    As the subject says, this is not a post-2.6.14 regression.

    And reading the discussion on netdev, it seems this wasn't ever expected
    to work without additional netfilter patches.

    If this is still present, David should look into it:

    If this affects Linus' tree, a patch for it is in -mm.

    As the subject says, this is a problem when using an external version of
    this driver.

    According to the report perhaps not a post-2.6.14 regression.

    But anyways, this should be better debugged.

    Does it work with kernel
    Does it work with kernel 2.6.15-rc6?
    If it stil fails, can you send a complete dmesg for 2.6.15-rc6?

    This is not a post-2.6.14 regression.

    No answer by the submitter when being asked for more information.

    Reported against 2.6.13, therefore not a post-2.6.14 regression.
