Subject: [PATCH 01/13] netfilter: nf_tables: delay chain policy update until transaction is complete

From: Florian Westphal <fw@...len.de>

When we process a long ruleset of the form

chain input {
   type filter hook input priority filter; policy drop;
   ...
}

Then the base chain gets registered early on, we then continue to
process/validate the next messages coming in the same transaction.

Problem is that if the base chain policy is 'drop', it will take effect
immediately, which causes all traffic to get blocked until the
transaction completes or is aborted.

Fix this by deferring the policy until the transaction has been
processed and all of the rules have been flagged as active.
