Pretty neat patch.  Thanks a lot.

There were some code style issues and other stuff that was incorrect or
not ideal.  I used parts of it and pushed a bunch of commits to the
mid-sync branch [1].  Would be great if you could test that code.

I guess that's fine for now.  Since in our HA solution only one peer
handles the IKE messages the message IDs could get out of sync.  So
adding support for the HA cluster end of RFC 6311 would probably make
sense in the long run.
