[libvirt] [PATCH 0/9] add DHCP snooping support to nwfilter



	The following series of patches replaces IP address learning in
network filtering with DHCP snooping. The existing address learning capability 
does not provide security since it relies on addresses used in initial packets
sent by the guest to determine an IP address. A spoofing guest can simply
arrange to send packets using the target address early on.
	With DHCP snooping, only addresses acknowledged by a DHCP server can
be used by the guest, and only for the given lease time if the address lease
is not renewed.
	The patches also add support for multiple IP addresses per interface.

The split:

p1 -add return & continue support
	Add support for "return" and "continue" in filters.
p2 -fix ARP input checks
	Fix a bug that breaks correct use of ARP by overfiltering.
p3 -add MAC check; split ARP intp ARPMAC and ARPIP
	Support for multiple IP addresses in ARP checks, and allow for
	multiple MAC addresses in the future.
p4 -set default protocol policy to "DROP"; edit filters
	Change default protocol policy to "DROP", rather than adding explicit
	"DROP" rules at the end of all of them. This is for multiple address
	support.
p5 -optional "modify" (don't use temp, generate placeholder rules)
	Add support to dynamically add and remove filters without re-installing
	an entire chain.
p6 -addRules
	Add support for adding new rules to a chain incrementally. Remove
	support was already there.
p7 -ChangeVar support
	Add support to change chains that have a matching variable substitution
	to either add or delete rules with the given variable value (e.g., "IP")
p8 -add DHCP snooping
	The DHCP snooping code itself.
p9 -delete learnipaddr
	Clean up remaining learnipaddr infrastructure.
