Linux has no "generic" firewall hooks, only protocol specific ones.
Checkpoint is probably using the v4 specific ones only.
Other protocols can be received (by registering a protocol to ETH_P_ALL via
SOCK_PACKET or in the kernel), but not stolen from protocol handlers.
2.2 had no working firewall chains for IPv6, 2.4 has a v6 netfilter
BTW the CheckPoint module seems to leak routes too at least on 2.2,
there are regular reports of that.

Sounds like a serious CheckPoint bug.
