The commit in the mainline that needs fixing is:

  3c171f496ef5 ("netfilter: bridge: add connection tracking system")

The commit in net-next that fixes it is:

  47e640af2e49 ("netfilter: add missing IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_NF_TABLES) check to header-file.")

I applied it to the mainline and compile-tested it to verify that it
does indeed fix the build failure.

From my reading of stable-kernel-rules.rst and netdev-FAQ.rst, it
appears that the fix should come from the mainline, so I will wait for
it to get there.
