Implement counting of table entries linked on a per-table base.
Add an optional (if set > 0) limit of the maximum number of table

functions as well as the internal function pointers change from void
to having an int return type.

For as long as we do not set llt_maxentries this is can be committed
on its own. The moment we make use of the table limits, the callers
of the link function must check the return value as it can change.

Adjustments for IPv6 (and possibly IPv4) will follow in a separate

Just for the sake of history: this change makes llt_lookup() the last pointer in the cache line (given 64B size). Eventually we will need to reshuffle fields here a bit.
