Docker does not support nftables

Bug Description


I had a fresh 15.10 beta install and have thrown out iptables in favour of nftables.

Unfortunately, apt removed the package as well, since it depends on iptables.

Shouldn't be able to deal solely with nftables without the need for iptables?

I think this is an upstream bug because last I checked Docker shells out to
iptables directly.
