The HA patchset changes the Netfilter ABI, yielding to the error above.

If you apply the HA patch to the kernel, you also need a patched
iptables in the guest system, see [1] (but I don't know if it is patched
in the provided Gentoo filesystem). If you don't want to run any HA test
cases, you can also try to revert the HA kernel patches.
