[firewall] Fix iptables validator bugs. JB#48869


This example rule would fail, while being correct:
-p tcp -m tcp ! --tcp-option 1 -m tcp ! --tcp-option 2 -j ACCEPT

The reason is that tcp match has AF_UNSPEC instead of the particular
AF_INET/AF_INET6 protocol specified in its requirements.

Although it's possible to add a more complicated check (first to see,
if the match's family_dep is not UNSPEC, then if it equals the family,
but there's no need to since we only execute cleanup when the match
was already in the invoked_matches list, and it could have been there
only if it meets the conditions of the match.

Ergo: this check is unnecessary and harmful.


tokens[i] will only be false at the end of the vector, not when the
string is empty. Thus, this check does what the g_strv_length does.


It turned out that the function allows to use an empty
string ('') as a correct value, which should not be allowed.

Since like with the previous function, we can either use tokens[i] to
indicate vector end or g_strv_length. However, since we need to verify
that the split vector is empty, this form was chosen.
