If you want that #if defined, then check for CONFIG_NF_CONNTRACK
instead.

Still, I don't think you're going to save to much cycle for this and
the code looks better with much less ifdefs.

I mean something like:

#if defined(CONFIG_NF_CONNTRACK)
        if (ct && nf_ct_is_untracked(ct)) {
                addr1 = (__force u32) otuple->src.u3.in.s_addr;
                sport = otuple->src.u.udp.port;
[...]

That's enough to guarantee that you always hash using the same
information for NATted traffic coming in both directions (thus, you
ensure that load balancing is consistent).

I'm fine if you allow to select what tuple you want to use to hash.

OK.
