Diffserv on Linux: version 6



High time for the next release:

ftp://lrcftp.epfl.ch/pub/linux/diffserv/dist/ds-6.tar.gz

For diffs, etc., see also

http://icawww1.epfl.ch/linux-diffserv/dist.html
 
This one updates to the 2.2.10 kernel and iproute2 version ss990630. The
main feature in this version is Jamal's ingress policing, which allows to
perform traffic control-style classification and policing as soon as
packets enter the stack.

Also note that many Diffserv-related files are now in the iproute2
distribution. Oh, and there are now a few words on installation in the
README. I've attached the list of changes.
