We'd better guard the size of the nf_ct_ext, as the nf_ct_ext.len is u8.
If the size is bigger than 255, a warning will be printed.

Why are you checking this in basically every possible spot?
Just checking once during registration (assuming the worst
case of a conntrack using every possible extension) should
be enough.

Yes. It is enough, if we check every patch carefully. Thanks.
