It's a bit unclear what you're asking. Did you compile your own kernel with the "layer 7" module? The virtualization technology that DigitalOcean uses requires that the kernel on the droplet matches the one used on the hypervisor level. If you need to use a custom kernel, please contact the support team. They will review your requirements and import the kernel if possible.
