SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/3] netfilter : 3 patches to boost ip_tables performance

It's also not very hard for iptables when verifying the table to conclude
that there really isn't any "real" rules for a certain hook and then
delete that hook registration (only policy ACCEPT rule found). Allowing
you to have as many ip tables modules you like in the kernel, but only
using the hooks where you have rules. Drawback is that you loose the
packet counters on the policy.

Exception: iptable_nat. Needs the hooks for other purposes as well, not
just the iptable so here the hooks can not be deactivated when there is no
rules.

Henrik
