By default, when broadcast or multicast packet are sent from a local
application, they are sent to the interface then looped by the kernel
to other local applications, going throught netfilter hooks in the process.

These looped packet have their MAC header removed from the skb by the kernel
looping code.
This confuse various netfilter's netlink queue, netlink log and the
legacy ip_queue, because they try to extract a hardware
address from these packets, but extracts a part of the IP header instead.

This patch prevent NFQUEUE, NFLOG and ip_QUEUE to include a MAC header
if there is none in the packet.
