Subject[patch 05/32] EBTABLES: Deal with the worst-case behaviour in loop checks.
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

No need to revisit a chain we'd already finished with during
the check for current hook. It's either instant loop (which
we'd just detected) or a duplicate work.
