Hi strongswan developers,

I wrote a plugin to manage NDP and ARP proxy entries in the kernel 
neighbour table. It's a feature that was also requested in issue #1008, 
https://wiki.strongswan.org/issues/1008. Proxy ARP is disabled by 
default, so it doesn't break systems with farp plugin loaded.

It received some light testing on my system. With option 
--enable-monolithic it was only compile tested.

At the moment the plugin is linked against kernel_netlink_shared.lo, 
because that way it builds without warnings. I would have preferred to 
link the plugin against libstrongswan-kernel-netlink.la, but libtool 
warns this is not portable.

I wonder if this is material for inclusion in the strongswan repository. 
Suggestions and other feedback are always welcome.

With best regards,
