Agreed. I am waiting to see if this patch is going to work in the event
of connection reset/time out (in situations when the connection needs to
be re-established - with/without closing the tun device and possibly
re-establishing the ip address, routing and all other parameters) - in
that case the tun kernel module should already be loaded so if anything
goes wrong I am expecting 'relablefrom' avc to pop up. If not, then all
is well and I am applying this patch permanently.
