    This is from the link, which is from 2008:
    If you have not already, please read the README.

    Please note that this version of l7-filter is still in the early stages of development. This documentation may be out-of-date. You should read the documentation included in the package itself also, particularly the man page and the BUGS, Changelog and TODO files.

    This version of l7-filter has a number of compatibility problems with newer kernels. We hope to eventually get it all sorted out, but for now the kernel version is the development priority. If you can improve this version, please send your patches to our mailing list!
    From what it looks like this is not maintained, it speaks of compatibility problems with "newer" kernels. My 2 cents: look for a more up to date alternative, it may and will save time and energy.
