Description Phil Sutter 2017-07-18 10:21:00 UTC
Userspace part of nftables is still under heavy development upstream, therefore a rebase makes more sense than individual backports.

I'm sorry but there's more to remove: Kernel lacks support for any of the
mentioned new expressions, so I suggest to drop the whole first item in doc
text and release notes accordingly.

Thanks, Phil
