Currently no open source SOCKS proxy available for recent kernel versions. In fact router proxification depends on user-space proxy applications. This makes the operation much slower because of the intensive packet copy between kernel space and user-space. With this kernel module low-cost embedded devices can do the proxy function entirely in kernel space which makes the whole operation much faster, avoiding copies.
