Idiocy in Kernel Land

C'mon guys, what in the hell are you releasing a .1 for just to fix four lines of code. I realize that an exploit in netfilter could be a serious issue, but netfilter doesn't belong in the kernel to begin with; it should be userland code. Grrrr. This is exactly why I have been a FreeBSD zealot for so long. You don't see FreeBSD posting a new release to fix one small problem like a null pointer dereferencing issue.

Anyway, go patch your kernels.
