[libvirt] [PATCH v4 0/2] don't masquerade local broadcast/multicast packets



v2->v4 changes (v3 went in a different direction):
- Rename iptables(Add|Remove)ForwardDontMasquerade to
         iptables(Add|Remove)DontMasquerade [Laine].

Masquerading local broadcast breaks DHCP replies for some clients.
There has been a report about broken local multicast too.
(See references in the patches.)

Testing: 

  Chain POSTROUTING (policy ACCEPT 2 packets, 134 bytes)
      pkts      bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         
         0        0 RETURN     all  --  *      *       192.168.122.0/24     224.0.0.0/24        
         0        0 RETURN     all  --  *      *       192.168.122.0/24     255.255.255.255     
         0        0 MASQUERADE  tcp  --  *      *       192.168.122.0/24    !192.168.122.0/24    masq ports: 1024-65535 
         0        0 MASQUERADE  udp  --  *      *       192.168.122.0/24    !192.168.122.0/24    masq ports: 1024-65535 
         0        0 MASQUERADE  all  --  *      *       192.168.122.0/24    !192.168.122.0/24    

+ make check, make syntax-check, virsh net-start / net-destroy.
