Sorry, this wasn't included in the kernel and iptables of 0.3. This was
a silly omission on my part since it's often needed. I'll make sure it
gets into the next version.

You would need to rebuild Sisela with the TCPMSS iptables target enabled
in the kernel configuration, and modify patches/iptables-1.2.8-makefiles-patch
in the source distribution to include the 'tcpmss' extension (see line
117 of the patch).
