Trying out L2TPv3 in Linux 2.6.35.4

So I built me a 2.6.35.4 kernel to try out the new L2TPv3 support offered in this kernel.

L2TPv3 is pretty good and the newest kernel provides awesome RFC 3931 support, but I would advise some people to stick with L2TPv2. Not a lot of 3rd party vendors are there yet and the newest version has a lot of overhead over the wire.

I'm still on the fence about btrfs. I'll give it another six months before I actually change my LVM over.

Oh and by the by. The new kernel improves LVM response by about 5% - 10% depending on setup.
