From: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org>

This patch adds the NFQA_CAP_LEN attribute that allows us to know
what is the real packet size from user-space (even if we decided
to just retrieve just a few bytes from the packet instead of all
of it).

Security software that inspects packet should always check for
this new attribute to make sure that it is inspecting the entire
packet.

This also helps to provide a workaround for the problem described
in (netfilter: nfnetlink_queue: fix maximum packet length to userspace).

Original idea from Florian Westphal.
