Subject: [PATCH 00/25] Netfilter/nftables updates for net-next

Hi David,

The following patchset contains Netfilter/nftables updates for net-next,
most relevantly they are:

1) Add set element update notification via netlink, from Arturo Borrero.

2) Put all object updates in one single message batch that is sent to
   kernel-space. Before this patch only rules where included in the batch.
   This series also introduces the generic transaction infrastructure so
   updates to all objects (tables, chains, rules and sets) are applied in
   an all-or-nothing fashion, these series from me.

3) Defer release of objects via call_rcu to reduce the time required to
   commit changes. The assumption is that all objects are destroyed in
   reverse order to ensure that dependencies betweem them are fulfilled
   (ie. rules and sets are destroyed first, then chains, and finally

4) Allow to match by bridge port name, from Tomasz Bursztyka. This series
   include two patches to prepare this new feature.

5) Implement the proper set selection based on the characteristics of the
   data. The new infrastructure also allows you to specify your preferences
   in terms of memory and computational complexity so the underlying set
   type is also selected according to your needs, from Patrick McHardy.

6) Several cleanup patches for nft expressions, including one minor possible
   compilation breakage due to missing mark support, also from Patrick.
