    bug 11056: Add customized iptables and kernel modules to the system template
    
    The new kernel module xt_CHECKSUM.ko is based on [1], and back ported to 2.6.32
    kernel. New iptables is based on adding a new extension from [2].

    status 11056: resolved fixed



It fixes bug http://bugs.cloud.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11056, that debina/ubuntu client can't
get ip address in some cases. 
It's ok to remove it from source tree, as the patched iptable binary itself is already installed
in system vm template.
