Default Kernel patches needed for load balancing

Just a note that this solution works fine for a single machine, but if you are using load balancing on a gateway/router that is NAT-ing multiple machines, then you will need to build a custom kernel using the patches located at http://www.ssi.bg/~ja/. Otherwise you will experience packet loss and hung connections from the NAT-ed machines.
