Anyone can get IPcomp (option IPSEC, not FAST_IPSEC) working?

Here is how I understand the code we currently have:

On the receiver side, ipcomp4_input() hands decompressed packets to 
encap4_input(). Nobody has been registered to receive the packets so 
we skip it and we try rip_input(). No raw IP socket is here to get the
packet, so it is dropped.

How is it supposed to work? Is it known to work?
