Subject[PATCH net] netfilter: conntrack: Pass value of ctinfo to __nf_conntrack_update
Clang warns:

net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core.c:2068:21: warning: variable 'ctinfo' is
uninitialized when used here [-Wuninitialized]
nf_ct_set(skb, ct, ctinfo);
net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core.c:2024:2: note: variable 'ctinfo' is
declared here
enum ip_conntrack_info ctinfo;
1 warning generated.

nf_conntrack_update was split up into nf_conntrack_update and
__nf_conntrack_update, where the assignment of ctifno is in
nf_conntrack_update but it is used in __nf_conntrack_update.

Pass the value of ctinfo from nf_conntrack_update to
__nf_conntrack_update so that uninitialized memory is not used
and everything works properly.
