commit 528a3a6f67d4fbe708b9f306be194e78b29e8d7a

    netfilter: ctnetlink: get rid of module refcounting in ctnetlink
    
    This patch replaces the unnecessary module refcounting with
    the read-side locks. With this patch, all the dump and fill_info
    function are called under the RCU read lock.
    
    Based on a patch from Fabian Hugelshofer.
