From: "holger@eitzenberger.org" <holger@eitzenberger.org>

Current NFQUEUE target uses a hash, computed over source and
destination address (and other parameters), for steering the packet
to the actual NFQUEUE. This, however forgets about the fact that the
packet eventually is handled by a particular CPU on user request.

If E. g.

  1) IRQ affinity is used to handle packets on a particular CPU already
     (both single-queue or multi-queue case)

and/or

  2) RPS is used to steer packets to a specific softirq

the target easily chooses an NFQUEUE which is not handled by a process
pinned to the same CPU.

The idea is therefore to use the CPU index for determining the
NFQUEUE handling the packet.

E. g. when having a system with 4 CPUs, 4 MQ queues and 4 NFQUEUEs it
looks like this:

 +-----+  +-----+  +-----+  +-----+
 |NFQ#0|  |NFQ#1|  |NFQ#2|  |NFQ#3|
 +-----+  +-----+  +-----+  +-----+
    ^        ^        ^        ^
    |        |NFQUEUE |        |
    +        +        +        +
 +-----+  +-----+  +-----+  +-----+
 |rx-0 |  |rx-1 |  |rx-2 |  |rx-3 |
 +-----+  +-----+  +-----+  +-----+

The NFQUEUEs not necessarily have to start with number 0, setups with
less NFQUEUEs than packet-handling CPUs are not a problem as well.

This patch extends the NFQUEUE target to accept a new
NFQ_FLAG_CPU_FANOUT flag. If this is specified the target uses the
CPU index for determining the NFQUEUE being used. I have to introduce
rev3 for this. The 'flags' are folded into _v2 'bypass'.

By changing the way which queue is assigned, I'm able to improve the
performance if the processes reading on the NFQUEUs are pinned
correctly.
