New behaviour of iptables 'timestart' parameter in Ubuntu 19.04

Asked by Peret Lopez on 2019-04-29

I have detected that iptables does not behave in the same way as with previous kernel.
Old behaviour:
'timestart' referred to the absolute time (UTC or whatever) to start applying the rul
New behaviour:
'timestart' refers to the offset since boot start

It implies a migration of the old rules, and it is difficult to keep compatibility, as the offset is complex to behave as an absolute time.
Is that expected?
