  NAT reservations are completely optional for TProxy - although
applying the tproxy patch itself probably won't go with the current
patch. But since you can safely disable NAT reservation support in your
kernel config and still have tproxy enabled, it's certainly possible to
create a tproxy patch which does not depend on NAT reservations at all.

  At the moment I don't have the time necessary to update NAT
reservations for 2.6.11 (sorry, not my decision), but as I've already
mentioned if you only need tproxy then it could even work without NAT
reservation support.
