conntrackd: deprecate `Family' in configuration file
This patch deprecates the `Family' tweak in the configuration file. Several reasons for this: * If not specified, this was default to IPv4 only in table dumps from the kernel. However, non-IPv4 events were still received. This is inconsistent. * It's an early tweak that was not documented (not included in any of the example files). If we want to support any sort of consistent filtering based on the family, this should happen in the filtering code. After this patch, conntrackd uses AF_UNSPEC to dump the conntrack and expectation tables from the kernel. Reported-by: Bill Fink <> Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
