[libvirt] [PATCH V13 0/5] Add DHCP snooping support to nwfilter



This series of patches adds DHCP snooping support to libvirt's
nwfilter subsystem.

DHCP snooping detects DHCP leases obtained by a VM and automatically
adjusts the network traffic filters to reflect the IP addresses
with which a VM may send its traffic, thus for example preventing
IP address spoofing.
Once leases on IP addresses expire or if a VM gives up on a
lease on an IP address, the filters are also adjusted.
All leases are persisted and automatically applied upon a VM's restart.
Leases are associated with the tuple of VM-UUID and interface MAC
address.

The following interface XML activates and uses the DHCP snooping:

    <interface type='bridge'>
      <source bridge='virbr0'/>
      <filterref filter='clean-traffic'>
        <parameter name='CTRL_IP_LEARNING' value='dhcp'/>
      </filterref>
    </interface>

Once an IP address has been detected on an interface, 'virsh dumpxml <vm>'
would show the IP address lease in the format <IP address>,<lease timeout
in seconds>:

    <interface type='bridge'>
      <source bridge='virbr0'/>
      <filterref filter='clean-traffic'>
        <parameter name='CTRL_IP_LEARNING' value='dhcp'/>
        <parameter name='IP_LEASE' value='192.168.122.210,180'/>
      </filterref>
    </interface>

   David and Stefan
