    netfilter: Add warning on nft NAT init if "iptable_nat" already loaded
    nft NAT cannot work along with iptables NAT.
    "iptable_nat" module is always loaded on the VZ Node (libvirt triggers
    the load), so warn on "nft_nat" module load.
    i've added an additional check - if "ip(6)table_nat" modules are really
    loaded - may be some time later libvirt won't trigger their load.
