i've used a stripped kernel, and like manuel points out, the only thing 
i've seen is that top doesnt work because it cant find the symbols. i'll 
try paul's suggestion of checking ipfstat -t to see if that is broken as well.

(i rarely check ipfstat, so it may have been broken without me noticing)
