Jakub Jankowski reported following oddity:

After 3 way handshake completes, timeout of new connection is set to
max_retrans (300s) instead of established (5 days).

shortened excerpt from pcap provided:
25.070622 IP (flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 52)
10.8.5.4.1025 > 10.8.1.2.80: Flags [S], seq 11, win 64240, [wscale 8]
26.070462 IP (flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 48)
10.8.1.2.80 > 10.8.5.4.1025: Flags [S.], seq 82, ack 12, win 65535, [wscale 3]
27.070449 IP (flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 40)
10.8.5.4.1025 > 10.8.1.2.80: Flags [.], ack 83, win 512, length 0

Turns out the last_win is of u16 type, but we store the scaled value:
512 << 8 (== 0x20000) becomes 0 window.

The Fixes tag is not correct, as the bug has existed forever, but
without that change all that this causes might cause is to mistake a
window update (to-nonzero-from-zero) for a retransmit.

Fixes: fbcd253d2448b8 ("netfilter: conntrack: lower timeout to RETRANS seconds if window is 0")
