Can you confirm that this error is related to the use of ESN, and not
the use of IPComp? Have you tried to disable IPcomp? If it works
without, you are probably lacking IPComp support or the used compression

ESN support was introduced with Linux 2.6.39, so unless your kernel has
a regression it should support it. ESN support at least on my kernel is
no option or module, and is always included in XFRM.
