Bug status can be changed to invalid, i managed to reproduce the ill 
behaviour without anything of netfilter compiled in.

The malformed packets can be triggered by cating something over a ssh 
connection while transfering data at high speed, it "feels" like the card is
getting packets too fast and corrupts them. i believe the nfs + ip_conntrack
combination has similar effects like cat because ip_conntrack causes bursts
in the nfs case because the inter-packet spacing is lost due to defragmentation.
non-bursty traffic doesn't cause this effect.
