netfilter: nf_nat: skip nat clash resolution for same-origin entries
It is possible that two concurrent packets originating from the same socket of a connection-less protocol (e.g. UDP) can end up having different IP_CT_DIR_REPLY tuples which results in one of the packets being dropped. To illustrate this, consider the following simplified scenario: 1. Packet A and B are sent at the same time from two different threads by same UDP socket. No matching conntrack entry exists yet. Both packets cause allocation of a new conntrack entry. 2. get_unique_tuple gets called for A. No clashing entry found. conntrack entry for A is added to main conntrack table. 3. get_unique_tuple is called for B and will find that the reply tuple of B is already taken by A. It will allocate a new UDP source port for B to resolve the clash. 4. conntrack entry for B cannot be added to main conntrack table because its ORIGINAL direction is clashing with A and the REPLY directions of A and B are not the same anymore due to UDP source port reallocation done in step 3. This patch modifies nf_conntrack_tuple_taken so it doesn't consider colliding reply tuples if the IP_CT_DIR_ORIGINAL tuples are equal.
