This patch enables chains that have a known prefix in their name.
Known prefixes are: 'ipv4', 'ipv6', 'arp', 'rarp'. All prefixes
are also protocols that can be evaluated on the ebtables level.

Following the prefix they will be automatically connected to an interface's
'root' chain and jumped into following the protocol they evalute, i.e.,

a table 'arp-xyz' will be accessed from the root table using

ebtables -t nat -A<iface root table>  -p arp -j I-<ifname>-arp-xyz

thus generating a 'root' chain like this one here:

Bridge chain: libvirt-O-vnet0, entries: 5, policy: ACCEPT
-p IPv4 -j O-vnet0-ipv4
-p ARP -j O-vnet0-arp
-p 0x8035 -j O-vnet0-rarp
-p ARP -j O-vnet0-arp-xyz

where the chain 'arp-xyz' is accessed for filtering of ARP packets.

  - assign a priority to filters that have an allowed prefix, e.g., assign
    the arp chain priority to a filter arp-xyz unless user provided a
    priority in the XML

Another patch without docs.  (It's okay if the docs comes as a separate
patch, and if a single doc patch covers the XML additions in both 6 and
7; my main concern is only that the docs get patched by the time the
series is completed, and I didn't see it when glancing ahead to 10/10).

Will cover this part also.

Thanks; this validation is essential since your shell scripting was
pretty loose on quoting (that is, if a user could name a chain with an
embedded space, or worse a semicolon, your script would probably blow up).

I think it would be worth inlining this second check (the strlen) into
the first one.  That is, it would make more sense if
virNWFilterIsValidChainName checks both for valid characters and for
valid length; and all other callers only have to make one call for
validation purposes instead of two.

Illegal implies breaking a law; I prefer the term "Invalid".

s/either one of/any of/

In English, "either" is only appropriate for a choice among 2 items, but
you are listing more than 2.

+        virBufferAdd(&buf, virNWFilterChainSuffixTypeToString(i), -1);

+    }
[Hmm, wondering if this would be any simpler if we added the
virBufferTruncate that was mentioned as a possibility in another thread;
then you wouldn't need a 'printed' flag in your loop.  But that's a
potential cleanup for another day.]

Don't mark "%s" for translation.  'make syntax-check' should be just
fine with unadorned virNWFilterReportError(VIR_ERR_INVALID_ARG, "%s", msg).

Ah, the comment line I mentioned in patch 6 got changed here anyways.
Oh well, sorry if I'm causing you needless churn in conflict resolution
when you rebase.

Fixed it now.
