strongswan vpn does not work

Status in strongswan package in Ubuntu:
strongswan vpn does not work with any of the published kernels 4.3
I have already reported this problem some days ago to strongswan.org under ticket #1189:
"I'm using strongswan 5.1.2-0ubuntu8 in lubuntu-16.04 (development) with kernel 4.3.
Setting up VPN with the NetworkManager, I get no error, BUT VPN does
not work; establishing VPN manually with: sudo ipsec restart, sudo
ipsec up ..., I get the following in the console:
received netlink error: invalid argument (22).
Unable to install source route for 139.174.7......
But finally it says: "connection "...." established correctly" (as
when using the NetworkManager VPN connection does not work
No such problem occur when using the kernel 4.2.0-19 (also 4.2.0-21)
instead: VPN works okay.
The same behaviour is found for lubuntu-15.10 with all kernels 4.3
where a older version of strongswan is still installed.
I was told by strongswan.org that this is a kernel bug (a patch
appears to exist; see the discussion at #1189).
