Sorry, I wanted to wait until the patch hit Linus' tree and
forgot about it. Unfortunately ctnetlink has a number of other
issues in 2.6.14 that don't fulfil the -stable requirements,
so in the end its still pretty unusable.
Anyway, this patch fixes a deadlock when dumping the conntrack
table which has already hit a number of people. Please consider
The patch Krzysztof attached went into 2.6.15-rc and fixes an
attribute sizes that was used inconsistently. Without this patch
compatiblity will break once we fix up the userspace side. The
first released kernel with ctnetlink was 2.6.14, so far the only
user known to me is a tool in beta-stage that lives in netfilter
SVN. We would prefer to have no incompatiblities between at least
2.6.14.x and later kernels, so is something like this acceptable
for -stable? If yes I'll send a patch that applies cleanly to
