I'm not sure that I understand your comment. Currently I change nothing
about nf_ct_iterate_cleanup(). In this sentence I point to the right
procedure of destroying a gre conntrack.

nf_ct_iterate_cleanup() is called from nf_ct_l4proto_pernet_unregister().

I have made this function static. If you don't have other comment, could
you take this patch?

Thanks,
