assuming we have lockless readers we should make sure they can only
see expectations that have already been initialized.

hlist_add_head_rcu acts as memory barrier, move it after timer setup.

Theoretically we could crash due to a del_timer() on other cpu
seeing garbage data.

 Not seen in practice, however i think this race
 is real.  Defer to nf-next if you think its not urgent.
