Description of problem:
The kernel-2.6.9-5.EL supports the netfilter addrtype feature
while the iptables command does not.
iptables -m addrtype -h
results in an error not finding the appropiate library.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. iptables -m addrtype -h
Actual Results: iptables v1.2.11: Couldn't load match addrtype:/lib/iptables/libipt_addrtype.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Expected Results: Since it is enabled in the kernel I would iptables expect to know it too.
This has to get fixed in glibc-kernheaders - there is no ipt_addrtype.h.
This is fixed in glibc-kernheaders-2_4-9_1_99_EL
We'll need to get that into the buildroot and build a new iptables.
QE ack for 4.5.
