> Have you considered proposing it for inclusing in Linux upstream as well?
Yes - we plan to propose it to netfilter-devel at a later stage, after
upgrading to Kernel 3.14 (our kernel is currently based on 3.10),
which is required for adding nftables support to fastpath's rules

This is indeed the preferred method, but unfortunately we are
currently bound to Barrier Breaker.
We will however prepare the package for the trunk, after uploading the
sources to GitHub.

Will do, stay posted.
