While at it, please introduce reverse xmas tree in variable
definitions incrementally:

	struct lsmcontext context = { };
  	enum ip_conntrack_info ctinfo;
  	struct nfnl_ct_hook *nfnl_ct;
  	bool csum_verify;
 	u32 seclen = 0;

And Cc: netfilter-devel@...r.kernel.org for patches that update the
Netfilter codebase.

Thanks.
