SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] netfilter: nat: add range checks for access to nf_nat_l[34]protos[]
Hi Pablo,

Yes, I believe this oops is only triggered by userspace when the user
specifically passes in an invalid nf_nat_l3protos index. I'm happy to re-work
the patch to check for this in ctnetlink_create_conntrack().

Regarding the Fixes: tag, I don't have one offhand since this bug was reported
to me, but I can search through the code history to find the commit that
exposed this vulnerability.

Thanks,
Will
