cthelpers added via nfnetlink may have the same tuple, i.e. except for
the l3proto and l4proto, other fields are all zero. So even with the
different names, we will also fail to add them:
  # nfct helper add ssdp inet udp
  # nfct helper add tftp inet udp
  nfct v1.4.3: netlink error: File exists

So in order to avoid unpredictable behaviour, we should:
1. cthelpers can be selected by nft ct helper obj or xt_CT target, so
report error if duplicated { name, l3proto, l4proto } tuple exist.
2. cthelpers can be selected by nf_ct_tuple_src_mask_cmp when
nf_ct_auto_assign_helper is enabled, so also report error if duplicated
{ l3proto, l4proto, src-port } tuple exist.

Also note, if the cthelper is added from userspace, then the src-port will
always be zero, it's invalid for nf_ct_auto_assign_helper, so there's no
need to check the second point listed above.

 V3: no changes, rebase on nf.git and resubmit
 V2: drop to use __nf_conntrack_helper_find, per Pablo

Applied, thanks.
