Hmmm.  I didn't know that.  I actually thought that was providing some
added security for me.  Thanks for letting me know.  I got rid of those
firewall rules (and now, no more unclean packets in the logs).

I will have to do a little reading on patching the kernel.  What
confused me was that the patch was imbedded in the email.  I didn't know
what part to get out to put in a file, nor what/how to call it.

For now I think I will wait for the next kernel version and just compile
a new one.
