[libvirt] [PATCH] docs: fix incorrect info about routed networks



In a recent expansion of the documentation on network forward modes, I
incorrectly stated that incoming sessions to guests on routed networks
were blocked. This is true for guests on NATed networks, but not
routed. This patch corrects that error, and adds a pointer to the
nwfilter page for those who do want to restrict incoming sessions to
hosts on routed networks.
