I found another solution, as this won't work (I explained the case in my
reply to your comment on 07/10). I noticed that we should just check
what del_timer() returns instead of timer_pending().

Heres the patch:

Fix reference counting (memory leak) problem in __nfulnl_send() and callers
related to packet queueing.
