I mean, I we have a bad packet (smurf or bad tcpflags) attack,

for each packet it need to go to the whole chains (vmbrxxx,tapxxx,..) to match the nosmurf or tcpflag block rule.

just put the rule in PVEFW-FORWARD, after

-A PVEFW-FORWARD -m conntrack --ctstate INVALID -j DROP

-A PVEFW-FORWARD -m conntrack --ctstate INVALID,NEW -j PVEFW-smurfs
-A PVEFW-FORWARD -p tcp -j PVEFW-tcpflags
