Fast work Andrey, and sorry for rushing in.  I ASSumed, after reading 
the new tables section in 11.0-R ipfw(8), that Kevin had run into:

	Tables require explicit creation via create before use.

but diving - not too deeply - into the log of /head/sbin/ipfw/tables.c 
from your commit, I think that statement must be out of date, at least 
regarding existing ruleset table configuration?  Is that right?

cheers, Ian
