The filter_remove function removes the specified filter from the specified filter stack, destroying a filter layer. If the specified filter was inserted into the filter stack multiple times, only the top filter layer of the filter is destroyed.
When possible, plug-in developers should avoid calling filter_remove directly, and instead use the remove-filter() SAF. this recommendation is applicable in Input-, Output-, Service-, and Error-class directives.
int filter_remove(SYS_NETFD sd, const Filter *filter);
REQ_PROCEED if the specified filter was removed successfully, or REQ_NOACTION if the specified filter was not part of the filter stack. Any other return value indicates an error.
SYS_NETFD sd is the filter stack, sn->csd.
const Filter *filter is the filter to remove.
