+Module matches or adds connlabels to a connection.
+connlabels are similar to connmarks, except labels are bit-based; i.e.
+all labels may be attached to a flow at the same time.
+Up to 128 unique labels are currently supported.
+[\fB!\fP] \fB\-\-label\fP \fBname\fP
+matches if label \fBname\fP has been set on a connection.
+Instead of a name (which will be translated to a number, see EXAMPLE below),
+a number may be used instead. Using a number always overrides connlabel.conf.
+if the label has not been set on the connection, set it.
+Note that setting a label can fail. This is because the kernel allocates the
+conntrack label storage area when the connection is created, and it only
+reserves the amount of memory required by the ruleset that exists at
+the time the connection is created.
+In this case, the match will fail (or succeed, in case \fB\-\-label\fP
+option was negated).
+Label translation is done via the \fB/etc/xtables/connlabel.conf\fP configuration file.
