parser_bison: dismiss anonymous meters
The former 'flow table' syntax allows flow tables with no name: # nft add rule x y flow { ip saddr counter } However, when listing, it leaks the name that it is autoallocating. # nft list ruleset table ip x { chain y { flow table __mt0 { ip saddr counter} } } Which is odd since then restoring will use such a name. Remove anonymous flow table/meters, so everyone needs to specify a name. There is no way to fix this, given anonymous flag tells us that the set behind this meter is bound to a rule, hence, released once the rule is going - the term "anonymous" was not good choice as a flag in first place. Only possibility is to strcmp for __ft to identify this is a nameless meter, which is a hack. Moreover, having no name means you cannot flush the set behind this meter, which criples this feature for no reason. On top of it, the wiki only documents named meters, and we have a record of users complaining on this behaviour. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <> Acked-by: Florian Westphal <>
