src: operational limit match
The nft limit match currently does not work at all. Below patches to nftables, libnftables, and kernel address the issue. A few notes on the implementation: - Removed support for nano/micro/milli second limits. These seem pointless, given we are using jiffies in the limit match, not a hpet. And who really needs to limit items down to sub-second level?? - 'depth' member is removed as unnecessary. All we need in the kernel is the rate and the unit. - 'stamp' member becomes the time we need to next refresh the token bucket, instead of being updated on every packet which goes through the match. This closes netfilter bugzilla #827, reported by Eric Leblond. Signed-off-by: Phil Oester <> Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
