	Latest ipvsadm version can be obtained with:

# git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/kernel/ipvsadm/ipvsadm.git

	But SCTP support is missing from ipvsadm.
May be we have to implement --sctp-service option.
Currently, admins use fwmark service to support SCTP, for example:

# Mark SCTP (protocol 132):
iptables -t mangle -A INPUT -p 132 -d $VIP ... -j MARK --set-mark 1
# Add fwmark-based service as usually
ipvsadm -A -f 1 -s wlc
ipvsadm -a -f 1 -r $RIP:$RPORT -m
