Subject[patch 67/73] Netfilter: bridge: fix double POST_ROUTING invocation
2.6.23-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>

[NETFILTER]: bridge: fix double POST_ROUTING invocation

Upstream commit 2948d2ebbb98747b912ac6d0c864b4d02be8a6f5

The bridge code incorrectly causes two POST_ROUTING hook invocations
for DNATed packets that end up on the same bridge device. This
happens because packets with a changed destination address are passed
to dst_output() to make them go through the neighbour output function
again to build a new destination MAC address, before they will continue
through the IP hooks simulated by bridge netfilter.

The resulting hook order is:
PREROUTING (bridge netfilter)
POSTROUTING (dst_output -> ip_output)
FORWARD (bridge netfilter)
POSTROUTING (bridge netfilter)

The deferred hooks used to abort the first POST_ROUTING invocation,
but since the only thing bridge netfilter actually really wants is
a new MAC address, we can avoid going through the IP stack completely
by simply calling the neighbour output function directly.

Tested, reported and lots of data provided by: Damien Thebault <damien.thebault@gmail.com>
