	Sorry for the confusion i have brought.
	I intended to find a method to judge whether the destination ip address of a packet received is one of the ip addresses the receiving machine has.And this packet is intercepted by my netfilter prog(LKM,in "kernel state" of course) at the NF_IP_PRE_ROUTING point.Originally I judge the pkt_type of the skb packet,but i'm not sure when and where the skb->pkt_type is changed since being received by the NIC.Maybe no change happens since the skb is constructed at the sending machine?
	And, i have known how a bad subject has twisted your brain, thx a lot^^.
