The LOG target uses is as a backend if it is loaded, but this is IMO
actually a mistake, the LOG target should keep working the same way
as it always did. Which reminds me that I wanted to restore the old
way before 2.6.16 is out ..

Mhh maybe we could add a flag to the LOG target to use whatever nf_log
backend is registered. I'd prefer that to a full new target.
