Started cleaning up my patches into series using "quilt", which is a mediocre utility for managing a series of patches. Nonetheless, digging around in the kernel again has resulted in several cleanup patches already, and more to come. I revised and updated a series of netfilter patches, particularly NAT work, which I hope to get through netfilter-devel and into the -mm tree for 2.6.11 or so.

I broke some things in the process, but the code got simpler. Hopefully people in advanced configurations will figure out how to fix it when their setups change (implicit source NAT is not done on locally generated packets). Hmm, perhaps I should detect that and issue a warning.
