Which kernel was the last version without this problem?

The main suspects would be NAT and TCPMSS. Did you also try whether
the crash occurs with only one of these these rules?

That's really weird since you're apparently not using any bridge
netfilter features. It shouldn't have any effect besides changing
at which point ip_tables is invoked. How are your network devices
configured (specifically any bridges)?
