[CentOS] Shorewall and the latest kernel problem

I just installed the latest kernel 2.6.32-573.8.1.el6.x86_64 and when I 
rebooted it shorewall (shorewall-4.5.4-1.el6.noarch) failed with the 
following error

ERROR: a non-empty masq file requires NAT in your kernel and iptables 
/etc/shorewall/masq (line 15)

Question is is this a problem in the kernel or is it a problem in 

Booting the previous kernel allowed shorewall to start normally.

Any one else seen this error, if so what's the fix?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


If money can fix it, it's not a problem.
