+ipset 5.x upgrade notices
+- From ipset 5.0-5.3 to 5.4:
+ Due to the source code reorganization, some macros were moved to
+ the netlink.patch. Therefore when upgrading, you have two choices:
+ a. force the application of the new netlink.patch
+ kernel-source-dir # patch -p1 -f < ipset-5.4-dir/netlink.patch
+ b. remove the earlier netlink.patch and apply the new one:
+ kernel-source-dir # patch -p1 -R < ipset-before-5.4-dir/netlink.patch
+ kernel-source-dir # patch -p1 < ipset-5.4-dir/netlink.patch
+ You do not need to recompile your kernel.
+ Of course the kernel modules in ipset-5.4 must be compiled and installed.
