Blob Blame Raw
Jon Masters correctly points out that conntrack hash sizes
(nf_conntrack_htable_size) are global (not per-netns) and
modifiable at runtime via /sys/module/nf_conntrack/hashsize .

Steps to reproduce:
	clone(CLONE_NEWNET)
	[grow /sys/module/nf_conntrack/hashsize]
	exit()

At netns exit we are going to scan random memory for conntracks to be killed.

Apparently there is a code which deals with hashtable resize for
init_net (and it was there befode netns conntrack code), so prohibit
hashsize modification if there is more than one netns exists.

To change hashtable sizes, you need to reload module.

Expectation hashtable size was simply glued to a variable with no code
to rehash expectations, so it was a bug to allow writing to it.
Make "expect_hashsize" readonly.

This is temporarily until we figure out what to do.
