From: Gao feng <gaofeng@cn.fujitsu.com>

The parameter of setup_timer should be &ulog->nlgroup[i].
the incorrect parameter will cause kernel panic in
ulog_timer.

Bug introducted in commit 355430671ad93546b34b4e91bdf720f3a704efa4
"netfilter: ipt_ULOG: add net namespace support for ipt_ULOG"

ebt_ULOG doesn't have this problem.

[ I have mangled this patch to fix nlgroup != 0 case, we were
  also crashing there --pablo ]
