    Improve iptables_manager _modify_rules() method

    As the number of ports per default security group increases, the
    number of iptables entries on the Compute Node grows. Because of
    this, there is a gradual increase in the time taken to apply chains
    and rules.

    Currently we are using list comprehensions to find if a new chain or
    rule matches an existing one. Instead, walk through the list in
    reverse to find a matching entry.

    Added a new method, _find_last_entry(), to return the entry we are
    searching for.
