I wait for comments too :) No other workarounds to combine
UDP and TCP.
There was a propsal to add some options to the
fwmark services, for example, the protocol wildards. Even the
solution looked well defined but a bit complex:
-f 1 -t tcp
-f 2 -t udp
-f 3 wildcard protocol
We decided not to change the current fwmark semantic. But I think,
we can easily break the template definitions by using a const protocol
value. This will be the easiest change without touching the user space.
