Subject: [PATCH] net: bpfilter: fallback to netfilter if failed to load
 bpfilter kernel module

If bpfilter is not available return ENOPROTOOPT to fallback to netfilter.

Function request_module() returns both errors and userspace exit codes.
Just ignore them. Rechecking bpfilter_ops is enough.

Fixes: d2ba09c17a06 ("net: add skeleton of bpfilter kernel module")
