Ok

I've found the solution for my problem.

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.security.firewalls.netfilter.devel/30483

I've made this small fix from this thread:

diff --git a/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core.c b/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core

ret = -ENOMEM;

As the thread nf_conntrack: Use rcu_barrier() and fix kmem_cache_create flags
seems to be samewhat 'unfinished' and already a bit old and I've no
idea whether it actually fixes problem completely or just hides it in
my case - I'm leaving it to some RCU gurus to fix this issue.

All I could say is - this this extra rcu_barrier() and removal of
SLAB_DESTROY removes my GPF on reboot.
