 LKMs work, I've used ip_filter. Just add 'options LKM' to the kernel config.

 There's also bsdatalk,
o AppleTalk Protocol Stack for BSD

 Of course, you could use uar (Unix Appletalk Router) which is a userland

and CAP ( to provide Appletalk services. A kernel/lkm
implementation would probably be more efficient, though.
