There is no dstlimit netfilter kernel module in the current RHEL-4 kernel and
ipt_dstlimit.h in not part of glibc-kernheaders.
Please apply to kernel and glibc-kernheaders for inclusion of dstlimit, then
reapply to iptables.
BTW: dstlimit is not part of the standard iptables build.

Request moved to glibc-kernheaders.
Can we get the dstlimit included in iptables?

Not a lot of point in that unless we add the feature to our kernel.

There are actually two requests here:
dstlimit support in kernel, and to have glibc-kernheader headerfile for
inclusion in U6. This bug is to track the kernel header file inclusion.
So clone this RFE for dstlimit support in the kernel, and
clone this REF to include libipt_dstlimit into iptables package.
