I tested the patch and it compiles fine now, although
when iptables actually runs on mips32, all the
tcp/udp port numbers are shown as 0 and IP address
shown as 0.0.0.0. I'll dig more.
Anyway, you made a good point for kernel headers
problem. It's kinda headache.
Similar problem happened to asm-mips/page.h when
including <spaces.h> in 2.6.6, but it seemed that
you already fixed in the latest cvs version.
