Hi Patrick,

These are for 2.6.23 tree. The first patch might be better to
go 2.6.22. Either one is fine with me.

BTW, I think we'd better to do nothing for NFQNL_CFG_CMD_PF_[UN]BIND
commands and to register queue handlers at init() automatically after
removing ip[6]_queue.

Because they are diffcult to use. Even if we apply the first patch, a user
process can unregister a queue handler registered by other process. And
there is no way to count the number of process to use the handler (refcount
per handler doesn't help because process can issue [un]binding command over
again and again).
