|| ||[PATCH] priv_data 0/2|
|| ||Mon, 26 Jun 2006 16:41:46 +0200|
this is a version of my priv_data patch that updates targets and renames
functions as suggested by Patrick.
Since xt_init_match() and xt_init_target() (formerly xt_check_match() and
xt_check_target()) no longer just check and they needed some argument changes
anyway, I included some more common code previously replicated in
ip_tables.c, ip6_tables.c and arp_tables.c.
Similarly I introduced xt_destroy_match() and xt_destroy_taget().
The resulting patches are larger than I anticipated, but most of the space is
taken by function ranames and argument adjustments.
My previous example with xt_condition still applies (just rename checkentry to
init in struct xt_match).
I tested several combination with iptables, ip6tables and arptables. It can't
make it fail, but I didn't try it with a real world network load. Right now I
don't have a 64 bit machine available for testing (I should be able to use
one in a few days), so I didn't test compat at all.
Testing and comments, as always, are appreciated.
