regression in xt_limit kernel module

Bug #361226 reported by Victor Julien on 2009-04-14
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I noticed that in the Jaunty beta (i386), if I load the xt_limit kernel
module, the proc 'file' /proc/net/ip_tables_matches isn't updated with
it like it should.

On Intrepid:

$ sudo modprobe xt_limit
$ sudo cat /proc/net/ip_tables_matches

On Jaunty:

$ sudo modprobe xt_limit
$ sudo cat /proc/net/ip_tables_matches

My Vuurmuur iptables frontend (in Jaunty universe) depends on this to
determine what functionality iptables supports.

Can you please confirm if this is broken in the released version of Jaunty ?
