  On a recent installation of FC13, the filtering of IP/IPv6 using
iptables/ip6tables traffic did not work since the proc filesystem

/proc/sys/net/bridge/bridge-nf-call-ip6tables contained a zero each and
no traffic went into the FORWARD chain. The patch below makes sure that
if iptables or ip6tables are being used by the nwfilter driver that a
'1' is written into the relevant proc filesystem entry so that the
traffic goes into the FORWARD chain.
NACK to this. We need to figure out how to make this filtering
work with them set to 0. The change to set them to 0 by default
is explicitly done for the benefit of virtualization, otherwise
guest traffic gets blocked by regular host firewall rules which
is not desirable. eg run system-config-firewall and block ssh
port on the host, and you've blocked it on all the guests too :-(

The ssh port blocking for the host is a rule that goes into the INPUT table. That is independent of what libvirt does with the FORWARD table and this host rule would not influence the guest rules and vice versa. Traffic destined to bridged guests will NOT go through the INPUT table, only traffic from guests towards their own host will go through it.
