I've had the below patch in -mm for some time, but am not sure what to do
with it. My last attempt to contact netfilter people didn't work.

James? Help?


From: Martin Josefsson <gandalf@wlug.westbo.se>

You are correct. It was a list_del() that caused it (at least I think
so, it's 2am right now).

1. conntrack helper adds an expectation and adds that to a list hanging
of off a connection.

2. the expected connection arrives. the expectation is still on the
list.

3. the original connection that caused the expectation terminates but
the expectation still thinks it's added to the list.

4. the expected connection terminates and list_del() is called to remove
it from the list which doesn't exist anymore. boom!
