netfilter: nf_nat: fix NAT issue in
Vitezslav Samel discovered that since active FTP can not work over NAT. The "cause" of the problem was a fix of unacknowledged data detection with NAT (commit a3a9f79e361e864f0e9d75ebe2a0cb43d17c4272). However, actually, that fix uncovered a long standing bug in TCP conntrack: when NAT was enabled, we simply updated the max of the right edge of the segments we have seen (td_end), by the offset NAT produced with changing IP/port in the data. However, we did not update the other parameter (td_maxend) which is affected by the NAT offset. Thus that could drift away from the correct value and thus resulted breaking active FTP. The patch below fixes the issue by *not* updating the conntrack parameters from NAT, but instead taking into account the NAT offsets in conntrack in a consistent way. (Updating from NAT would be more harder and expensive because it'd need to re-calculate parameters we already calculated in conntrack.)
