  Aha, RGB! a customer for the skb->{security,ipcb,fwmark} mechanism.
Well maybe.
        skb->security           (16-bit)
        skb->nfmark     (much contention for this field)

is it planed to be able to set nfmark value per connecction for later processing with iptables ?


        skb->cb                 (see linux/ip.h, and net/ip.h's IPCB macro)
