Thanks!
It seems that nf_conntrack_l[3,4]proto_unregister doesn't make sure
nf_conns of the proto being destroyed.

If I'm right, there is another problem even your fix this panic problem.
the l3,14proto will be unregistered before all of it's nf_conns being destroyed.
So even nf_ct_destroy is not NULL,in destroy_conntrack we are not able to
find the right l4proto,the l4proto->destroy will be incorrect.resources will
not be released correctly.

So I think the root problem is we do register/unregister, set/unset both on the
first net (init_net), Maybe it's better to do register set on the first net, and
do unregister unset on the last net.
