There is no time support in kernel.
Assigning to kernel.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-11-29 18:44:48 EST
the userspace portion frequently supports modules that the kernel doesn't.
When these become available in the upstream kernel, they'll work, until then,
those features should be considered unavailable.

FC3 is very close to end of life, so it's not going to get any updates other
than those deemed critical.  Looking at the current FC5 tree, there isn't any
time based netfilter module yet, so it still needs to be pushed upstream.
