These patches have been marked as superseded in patchworks, likely due
to Florian's nftables version that has been merged.

While I very much appreciate the addition of VRF interface matching to
nftables, some users still depend on plain iptables for filtering. So I
guess there is some value in these patches for those users to extend
their filtering with VRF support.

Is there a chance of bringing in slavedev matching for iptables, or do
we have a policy to implement new features in nftables, only?
