ruleset: add XML/JSON export
This patch adds the following operation: :~# nft export <xml|json> The XML/JSON output is provided raw by libnftnl, thus without format. In case of XML, you can give format with the `xmllint' tool from libxml2-tools: :~# nft list ruleset xml | xmllint --format - In case of JSON, you can use `json_pp' from perl standar package: :~# nft list ruleset json | json_pp A format field is added in struct cmd, and it will be reused in the import operation.
