xtables: add xtables-compat-multi for the nftables compatibility layer
This patch should allow distributors to switch to the iptables over nftables compatibility layer in a transparent way by updating symbolic links from: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 feb 4 15:35 iptables -> xtables-multi to: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 feb 4 15:35 iptables -> xtables-compat-multi Same thing with iptables-save, iptables-restore, ip6tables, ip6tables-save, ip6tables-restore and arptables. Note that, after this patch, the following new symlinks are installed: * iptables-compat * iptables-compat-save * iptables-compat-restore * ip6tables-compat * ip6tables-compat-save * ip6tables-compat-restore * arptables-compat which point to the new binary xtables-compat-multi. The idea is to keep both native and compatibility tools installed in the system, which should also make it easier for testing purposes. The iptables over nftables compatibility layer is enabled by default and it requires the libmnl and libnftnl libraries. If you don't want to compile the compatibility layer, you can still disable it through --disable-nftables. This patch also includes changes to adapt the existing code to this approach.
