xtables: bootstrap ARP compatibility layer for nftables
This patch bootstraps ARP support for the compatibility layer: 1) copy original arptables code into xtables-arp.c 2) adapt it to fit into the existing nft infrastructure. 3) add the builtin table/chains for ARP. 4) add necessary parts so xtables-multi can provide xtables-arp. 5) add basic support for rule addition (-A), insertion (-I) and listing (-L). [ This was originally posted in a series of patches with interdependencies that I have collapsed to leave the repository in consistent state. This patch includes the following changes I made: * Rename from xtables-arptables to xtables-arp, previous name too long. * Remove nft-arptables.c, now we have one single nft-arp.c file. Moved specific ARP functions to nft.c. Those should go away at some point as some refactorization should allow to accomodate those functions to the existing infrastructure. * Fix --opcode Request/Reply, so we can do something useful with this like dropping ARP request/replies. --pablo ] Signed-off-by: Giuseppe Longo <> Signed-off-by: Tomasz Bursztyka <> Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
