Description of problem:
Some of the more advanced Linux Virtual Server load-balancing setups in use by
certain customers require SyncID support to operate correctly. This patch was
accepted into the 2.4.x stable kernel some time ago.
Customer has been manually applying this patch atop RHEL3 kernels for a while
and using successfully, but would like to see this rolled into our builds to
save the trouble.

IPVS SyncID patch for 2.4.x kernel series
I back-ported ipvs 1.0.10
and the last version for 2.4.x kernels for syncd
To this kernel. How do you want the patches split up or unified? Is this kernel
still open for patches?
