      [NETFILTER] x_tables: Abstraction layer for {ip,ip6,arp}_tables · 2e4e6a17

      This monster-patch tries to do the best job for unifying the data
      structures and backend interfaces for the three evil clones ip_tables,
      ip6_tables and arp_tables.  In an ideal world we would never have
      allowed this kind of copy+paste programming... but well, our world
      isn't (yet?) ideal.
      
      o introduce a new x_tables module
      o {ip,arp,ip6}_tables depend on this x_tables module
      o registration functions for tables, matches and targets are only
        wrappers around x_tables provided functions
      o all matches/targets that are used from ip_tables and ip6_tables
        are now implemented as xt_FOOBAR.c files and provide module aliases
        to ipt_FOOBAR and ip6t_FOOBAR
      o header files for xt_matches are in include/linux/netfilter/,
        include/linux/netfilter_{ipv4,ipv6} contains compatibility wrappers
        around the xt_FOOBAR.h headers
      
      Based on this patchset we're going to further unify the code,
      gradually getting rid of all the layer 3 specific assumptions.
