Subject: [PATCH nf-next 0/2] improve error reporting
Date: Sun,  2 Aug 2020 03:30:00 +0200
Message-ID: <20200802013002.14916-1-pablo@netfilter.org> (raw)

Hi,

This is a small batch to improve error reporting:

Patch #1 allows for location-based error reporting in expressions, eg.

 # nft add rule x y jump z
 Error: Could not process rule: No such file or directory
 add rule x y jump z
              ^^^^^^

Patch #2 replaces EBUSY by EEXIST in several scenarios that are reported
         to cause confusion among users.

Pablo Neira Ayuso (2):
  netfilter: nf_tables: extended netlink error reporting for expressions
  netfilter: nf_tables: report EEXIST on overlaps
