arptables: legacy renamingHEADmaster
The original arptables tool is now the legacy version, let's rename it. A more uptodate client of the arptables tool is provided in the iptables tarball. The new tool was formerly known as arptables-compat. The new -legacy binary should have no problem if called via a symlink.

+.SH LEGACY
+This tool uses the old xtables/setsockopt framework, and is a legacy version
+of arptables. That means that a new, more modern tool exists with the same
+functionality using the nf_tables framework and you are encouraged to migrate now.
+The new binaries (formerly known as -compat) uses the same syntax and
+semantics than this legacy one.
+
+You can still use this legacy tool. You should probably get some specific
+information from your Linux distribution or vendor.
+More docs are available at https://wiki.nftables.org
