Subject: [PATCH] Net: netfilter: vmalloc/vfree to kvmalloc/kvfree

Fixed FIXME by changing memory allocation and freeing
in htable_create to kvmalloc and kvfree from vmalloc and vfree.
Changes are made throughout the file in order to account
for the different allocation of htable_create.
Small note: This is a replacement of an earlier patch that did not
work. Enough was changed, so I thought I would just submit a new
patch.
