pf-kernel is yet another Linux kernel fork which provides you with a handful of awesome features not merged into mainline. It is based on neither existing Linux fork nor patchset, although some unofficial ports may be used if required patches haven’t been released officially. The name of the fork is by no means related to BSD Packet Filter. «pf» stands for «post-factum», the author’s nickname.
Each version has been tested by author before releasing using Dell Vostro 3360 config. Binary builds are not tested by myself. There’s no warranty at all.
