 The linux kernel has had various major regressions, performance
 issues and subtle bugs (especially in pmtu). Here is a short list

 Current Status
 - IPsec integration with strongSwan (requires patched strongSwan)

 - IPv6 over IPv4 NBMA GRE -- majority of code exist; but is not tested
-- Spoke (NHC) functionality complete
-- Hub (NHS) functionality complete
-- Multicast support is not done yet
-  (so OSPF will not work, use BGP for now)

-The code is not (yet) compatible with Cisco FlexVPN style DMVPN. It
-would require relaying IKEv2 routing messages from strongSwan to nhrpd
