This patchset looks bette but there are still things that we have to
resolve.

The first one (regarding this patch 1/17) changes in:
* include/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_l4proto.h
* include/net/netns/conntrack.h

should be included in:
[PATCH] netfilter: add namespace support for l4proto

And changes in:
* include/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_l3proto.h

should be included in:
[PATCH] netfilter: add namespace support for l3proto

I already told you. A patch that adds a structure without using it,
is not good. The structure has to go together with the code uses it.

I don't see why we need this new field.

It seems to be set to 1 in each structure that has set:

.ctl_compat_table

to non-NULL. So, it's redundant.

Moreover, you already know from the protocol tracker itself if you
have to allocate the compat ctl table or not.

In other words: You set compat to 1 for nf_conntrack_l4proto_generic.
Then, you pass that compat value to generic_init_net via ->inet_net
again, but this information (that determines if the compat has to be
done or not) is already in the scope of the protocol tracker.

You have to fix this.
