Subject[49/93] netfilter: xtables: compat out of scope fix
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com>

commit 14c7dbe043d01a83a30633ab6b109ba2ac61d9f7 upstream.

As per C99 6.2.4(2) when temporary table data goes out of scope,
the behaviour is undefined:

if (compat) {
struct foo tmp;
...
private = &tmp;
}
[dereference private]
