Is your tool open source licensed? If so it would be nice to share it 
with the rest of us.

I'd prefer a wrapper script which automatically executes the right 
binary depending on your running kernel version. It's a simple thing, 
if I don't receive any further response from the Debian Maintainer of 
ipvsadm (shameless plug: I opened the above bug report) I might just 
write one myself and see if it gets accepted.

I haven't encountered your problem yet. But since a few little/big 
endian issues have been fixed in the last couple of days, I'm planning 
to use an Ultra 5 to be a second director in a active-active
configuration with a x86 machine. Both will be running Sarge, so I might
also encounter your described problem.
