Module question - what's tomato_ct?

    I am using teddy_bear's excellent USB mod.

    I am trying to save a few extra KB of RAM. Can someone please tell me what the tomato_ct module does? lsmod states it is unused but I would still like to know what it is.

    Thanks :)

    This is Tomato's conntrack helper. It's needed to make "Drop Idle" button on the "Advanced->Conntrack/Netfilter" page functional.
    Oh, and "(unused)" doesn't really mean "not used"... "wl" is shown as "unused" too. It only indicates that no other loaded modules reference this one.

    Thank you for the information, and thank you for your excellent work on the Tomato project. Using your firmware I have made a Asterisk PBX out of a $25 router!

    Actually I have unloaded wl as I do not use wireless and it is helpful for Asterisk to have the extra RAM.
