hey, you already shared several statements regarding nftables which are not true. Lots and lots of people are using distribution kernels, which contains NF_TABLES config enabled (all major distros have it) I believe people who build their own kernels are very few if you compare with the number of people who don't (but yeah, they usually have more money). This may sounds as a joke, but there are *a lot* of people running productions servers with bluetooth drivers enabled in the kconfig. So, I can confirm that: Lots of people and institutions are using nftables already. Lots of people and institutions are considering transition to nftables it from iptables. Lots of people are running simple commodity hardware and know nothing about smartnics or any kind of offloading -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe netfilter-devel" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
