It's harmless, and can only happen on busy SMP. Will remove it before
2.4.0: you can remove it now.
It's not always possible to know which connections to track. Putting
it under user control simply adds another area where mistakes can be
made. You never want to map a connection over an existing one, simply
because you didn't know the existing one is there.
Simply insert the module when you require NAT.
