that's what it intends to do.  The field names are all stored in
'lnstat_field.name', so it is easy to build that line.  However, it has
to be multiple-line, since the field names from the kernel are sometimes
quite long...

The only difference is that it won't show you "IN: hits" but rather
"in_hits" which I think we can safely ignore.
