Support creation of macvlan devices for LXC containers. Do not
allow setting of network filters, bandwidth controls or vport
profiles due to the complication that there is no host side
visible device to work with.

Afaik, filtering doesn't work on the direct interfaces anyway due to
missing hooks in their kernel implementation. At least  I have been
told so about the macvtap type of device.

Oh, I wonder why the filtering controls are set for macvtap devices
in the QEMU driver :-)

I will remove that. The parser already doesn't accept filters on direct interfaces.
