firewall module working with ipchain (kernel 2.2)

This is preliminary. I have reworked the module so it either use the kernel 2.0 way or use the /sbin/ipchain utility. I did not use the ipchain-wrapper. I generate (each time) a script in /var/run/ and execute it. Check the output and test your firewall to make sure the behavior is unchanged.

I have notice one problem with forwarding rules. It seems that the semantic associated with the interface is different. Not sure. I have to check in the kernel code to understand what is happening here.

Again, check it out and retest carefully before committing your firewall to this new version.
