Subject: [PATCH net v6 1/2] net: netfilter: Limit the number of ftp helper port attempts

In preparation of fixing the port selection of ftp helper when using
NF_NAT_RANGE_PROTO_SPECIFIED, limit the number of ftp helper port
attempts to 128.

Looping a large port range takes too long. Instead select a random
offset within [ntohs(exp->saved_proto.tcp.port), 65535] and try 128
ports.
