Hi Patrick

Please find following patch to prepare next one (loop unrolling)

I am not sure xt_physdev_info is aligned, either on an int or a long,
so please check my assertion before applying :)



Thank you

[PATCH] netfilter: xt_physdev fixes

1) physdev_mt() incorrectly assumes nulldevname[] is aligned on an int

2) It also uses word comparisons, while it could use long word ones.

Yes, the private structures can assume alignment suitable for
pointers and unsigned longs.

Applied, thanks.
