src: rename ibrportname, obrportname
For bridge, iifname is the port name, whereas 'ibrport' is the logical name of the bridge ("br0") the port ("iifname") is enslaved to. So, 'ibrport' is a misnomer. libnftl calls these 'bri_iifname' and 'bri_oifname', which is good but using 'briiifname' in nft is rather ugly, so use 'ibridgename' and 'obridgename' instead. Old names are still recognized, listing shows the new names. Signed-off-by: Florian Westphal <>
