Though I had no compile errors (must have been my '1337 merging skillz' :)
no runtime error or Oops/panic either. So far, the xtables merge went well 
inasfar that my other targets (XOR) I patch in work.
OTOH, some sample TPROXY match also seems to fail:
  19:11 shanghai:/home/jengelh # iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s 
  -j TPROXY --on-ip --on-port 31299
  iptables: Invalid argument
which I would say belongs to the above...
