don't quote log prefix

Bug #253843 reported by avdd
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
firehol (Debian)
firehol (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firehol

firehol's logging looks like this:

Aug 1 11:02:15 foo kernel: [78388.922568] 'IN-WORLD':IN=eth9....

The quotes are unnecessary and annoying. Please remove them.

Hello Avdd,

This logging is the standard produced by the underlying inferstructure of firehol (Linux's "iptables"). I'm afraid it can't be altered.

Kind Regards,

The patch still applies but seems like a better target for Karmic than Jaunty.

Thank you for the patch. It doesn't apply anymore to the maverick sources. If you could please refresh it and also forward the patch upstream, that would be great.

Is the reason is that the change (or similar) was already made upstream?
