This is fine and all for viewing, but what is being requested is a utility to
"edit" (arbitrarily remove) ip_conntrack entries.   Situations arrive when I'd
like to expire a cached conntrack entry sooner.  There's a way to do this with
TCP connections, but not UDP or other protocols as far as I can tell.

This would be really handy!
