Hmm, yes and no.

I should have put it in an extra commit :-/

Without this, we might erronously print a conntrack that is NEW
and which isn't confirmed yet.

We won't crash since seq_print doesn't depend on extensions being
set up properly, but it seems better to only display those conntracks
that are part of the conntrack hash table (i.e., have the confirmed bit

Let me know if you want me to respin this as a separate fix, thanks!
