I'm not really in a hurry, I have to maintain my own package anyways
for other custom patches anyway.
I just thought this one might be useful for others and IPv6 is more
and more popular.

physdev-out is only supported for bridged devices, hence the
"physdev-is-bridged" option.
If the device isn't bridged, it simply won't match and iptables has to
be configured some
other way.

But those limitations are already present in the IPv4 iptables config.

Damnit :p

I'll wait and see if there are other comments on the patch and resend
with all corrections if needed.
