Subject[patch 24/58] netfilter: {ip, ip6, arp}_tables: fix incorrect loop detection
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>

upstream commit: 1f9352ae2253a97b07b34dcf16ffa3b4ca12c558

Commit e1b4b9f ([NETFILTER]: {ip,ip6,arp}_tables: fix exponential worst-case
search for loops) introduced a regression in the loop detection algorithm,
causing sporadic incorrectly detected loops.
When a chain has already been visited during the check, it is treated as
having a standard target containing a RETURN verdict directly at the
beginning in order to not check it again. The real target of the first
rule is then incorrectly treated as STANDARD target and checked not to
contain invalid verdicts.

Fix by making sure the rule does actually contain a standard target.

Based on patch by Francis Dupont <Francis_Dupont@isc.org>
