You may need to explain why people can't put copies of Linux 2.4 kernels
in the system then:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.4.37.y.git;a=blob;f=net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_tos.c
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.4.37.y.git;a=blob;f=net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_TOS.c
