commit 4813eadf6b17caa7fcce67ac2f929a3dd5178fa2
Author: Patrick McHardy <>
Date:   Mon Nov 24 18:34:48 2008 +0100

    netfilter: nf_conntrack_ftp: change "partial ..." message to pr_debug()
    The message triggers when sending non-FTP data on port 21 or with
    certain clients that use multiple syscalls to send the command.
    Change to pr_debug() since users have been complaining.
