xtables-compat-multi.c: Allow symlink of ebtables
This patch allows one to force a subsystem that one does not wish to modify (e.g. libvirt) to use the ebtables compatibility layer. ebtables-compat was already a symlink to xtables-compat-multi but ebtables was a stand-alone program. So one could move it out of the way before making the symlink as below: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Feb 24 11:03 ebtables -> xtables-compat-multi -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 75176 Feb 24 11:03 ebtables.orig With this patch, kernel modules ebtable_filter & ebtables are no longer loaded.
