src: remove nftnl_rule_cmp() and nftnl_expr_cmp()
These functions are not very useful, rule comparison from this layer does not work well with implicit set definitions. This infrastructure was added as an attempt to support for deletion by name from this layer, which should be done from higher level libnftables library. Finally, we never had a client for this code in Let's remove it and bump libversion for safety reasons. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
