Module firewall: iptable support

The module now output iptable commands instead of ipchains on kernel 2.4. No new capabilities were added to the module beside that. Firewalls built using Linuxconf and ipchains should work as before using iptables. There is one big difference though. iptables uses the INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT chains very differently.

This may affect some router configuration for sure. Please review.

Now, if you do not have time to review this, there is a check-box in the feature section of the "firewall defaults" dialog. It is called "Use IP chains even on kernel 2.4"
