Filter refactoring: dropped the recursion from the interpreter
This is a major change of how the filters are interpreted. If everything works how it should, it should not affect you unless you are hacking the filters themselves. Anyway, this change should make a huge improvement in the filter performance as previous benchmarks showed that our major problem lies in the recursion itself. There are also some changes in nest and protocols, related mostly to spreading const declarations throughout the whole BIRD and also to refactored dynamic attribute definitions. The need of these came up during the whole work and it is too difficult to split out these not-so-related changes.
