Description

This mini-workshop covers updates in the netfilter area
since the last netdevconf.

I will be presenting:
   * Summary of updates in kernel/nftables/iptables
   * Pending changes not yet upstreamed
   * Update on the listify-netfilter-hooks idea

The latter two includes experimental changes that might not work out as-is.
listify-netfilter-hooks was already presented at last years netfilter workshop.
I revisited this, however, there are still fundamental problems of why this isn't viable.
