Running 2.4.4 with this patch for the past 4 days has reduced the number of
inappropriately dropped packets by ip_conntrack to nearly zero. The number
of legitimate packets that used to be dropped previous to running this patch
would sometimes reach into the low hundreds over the same time frame. (FWIW,
I have a cable modem connection to the 'net, and so it gets a bit slow from
time to time since my bandwidth is shared...).
