VPN fix on kernel 2.4?

There was a thread some time ago about pptp VPN's not working with
chilli. Peter Warasin found the solution to lie in some iptables rules
in the raw table. I recently came across the same problem but sadly
found out that on my WRT54GL with openwrt firmware I don't have iptables
raw module :-( It seems that kernel 2.4 by default doesn't have it
(neither vanilla 2.4.34 nor latest 2.4.37) and iptables_raw.c was only
introduced in the 2.6 kernel series.
So, without suggesting I move to kernel 2.6 (which isn't an option at
this stage), what do you think I should do? I see Mikrotik made a patch
for 2.4.30 which includes iptable_raw, NOTRACK and so on but I'm not
sure my kernel hacking skills are up to the task...
