SubjectRe: [PATCH v5 2/2] netfilter: save the hash of the tuple in the original direction for latter use

I like this idea. We could actually do the same for the reply tuple
and invalidate the saved hash in case the reply tuple is changed
(nf_conntrack_alter_reply()), which only happens when NAT is used.

This patch uses underscores a bit excessively, how about renaming:

- ____hash_conntrack() => hash_conntrack_raw()
- __hash variables => hash
- hash variables => bucket

Please try to stay at least close to the 80 characters limit.
