Subject: [PATCH 0/8] Netfilter fixes for net

Hi David,

The following patchset contains Netfilter fixes for your net tree,
they are:

1) Allow to recycle a TCP port in conntrack when the change role from
   server to client, from Marcelo Leitner.

2) Fix possible off by one access in ip_set_nfnl_get_byindex(), patch
   from Dan Carpenter.

3) alloc_percpu returns NULL on error, no need for IS_ERR() in nf_tables
   chain statistic updates. From Sabrina Dubroca.

4) Don't compile ip options in bridge netfilter, this mangles the packet
   and bridge should not alter layer >= 3 headers when forwarding packets.
   Patch from Herbert Xu and tested by Florian Westphal.

5) Account the final NLMSG_DONE message when calculating the size of the
   nflog netlink batches. Patch from Florian Westphal.

6) Fix a possible netlink attribute length overflow with large packets.
   Again from Florian Westphal.

7) Release the skbuff if nfnetlink_log fails to put the final
   NLMSG_DONE message. This fixes a leak on error. This shouldn't ever
   happen though, otherwise this means we miscalculate the netlink batch
   size, so spot a warning if this ever happens so we can track down the
   problem. This patch from Houcheng Lin.

8) Look at the right list when recycling targets in the nft_compat,
   patch from Arturo Borrero.
