pf-kernel is yet another Linux kernel fork which provides you with a handful of awesome features not merged into mainline. It is based on neither existing Linux fork nor patchset, although some unofficial ports may be used if required patches haven't been released officially. The name of the fork is by no means related to BSD Packet Filter. «pf» stands for «post-factum», the author's nickname.

Latest patch 4.3-pf1 [signature] (8.11.2015), applies to bare 4.3 kernel with no stable patches
Latest commits 4.3 branch
Older patches since 2.6.31
Source code [git] [http] [browser]
Arch Linuxofficial binaries (Intel Ivy Bridge, AMD Jaguar; big fat warning: proof-of-concept, unusable as of now)
