[libvirt] [PATCH V1 2/3] nwfilter: accept broadcasted DHCP replies in DHCP snooping code



Some DHCP servers send their DHCP replies to the broadcast MAC address
rather than to the MAC address of the VM. The existing DHCP snooping
code assumes that the reply always goes to the MAC address of the VM
thus filtering the traffic of some DHCP servers' replies.

The below patch adapts the code to

1) filter DHCP replies by comparing the MAC address in the reply against
   the MAC address of the VM (held in the snoop request)

2) adapts the pcap filter for traffic towards the VM to accept DHCP replies
   sent to any MAC address; for further filtering we rely on 1)

3) creates initial rules that are active while waiting for DHCP replies;
   these rules now accept DHCP replies to the VM's MAC address or to the
   MAC broadcast address
