libxtables: store all requested match types
iptables and ip6tables don't need this because iptables is AF_INET, ip6tables AF_INET6, etc. But tools that can change af in-between such as nftables will then may then find to find such module. One example is conntrack, it offsers NFPROTO_IPV4 and NFPROTO_IPV6. When first loading with NFPROTO_IPV6, the IPV4 would be discarded. Signed-off-by: Florian Westphal <>
