First of all, sorry about the delay in replying...

Yes, the error messages were printed during the installation of the routes (I use route=auto and the error messages were printed as soon as I restarted the Strongswan daemon after changing the config files to use fwmark).

I'll try to get you better log output at a later date. Right now I'm in the process of migrating to newer hardware (a Turris Omnia) and it'll take some time before I've managed to get 5.5.1 built and installed (there's already a pull request in the OpenWRT repo to update their package to 5.5.1).
