Support 'nft -f -' to read from stdin
In libnftables, detect if given filename is '-' and treat it as the common way of requesting to read from stdin, then open /dev/stdin instead. (Calling 'nft -f /dev/stdin' worked before as well, but this makes it official.) With this in place and bash's support for here strings, review all tests in tests/shell for needless use of temp files. Note that two categories of test cases were intentionally left unchanged: - Tests creating potentially large rulesets to avoid running into shell parameter length limits. - Tests for 'include' directive for obvious reasons.
