In the preceding week (7d), I have worked off the git stash and
reintegrated loose code snippets from 2011. I would like to elicit
comments on the selected subset of 11 commits. These in themselves
only build the basic table, but do so with the things (like netns,
RCU) in mind that I would do from the start. Recognizing that readers
want small chunks, I picked only these 11 commits to show. Therefore,
rule entry logic will not be found in tonight's mail thread.

The following changes since commit 198c5e907589835d9c9ad8c8fde661ad4d1796ee:

  netfilter: make nf_hook_ops.priv available to hooks (2012-11-01 15:34:03 +0100)
