Dunno, passing netns explicitly like saying conntrack event happened in
netns A, which is reasonable. OTOH, s/skb/ct/ is indeed nicer.

I'll change it as you suggest and see what happens.

BTW, I asked earlier if untracked conntracks are ever supposed to drop into
event cache. If they're, trimming nf_conntrack_untracked is out of question.
