 nf_tables_exit_net+0x186/0x3d0 [nf_tables]

Happens when a compat expr is destoyed from abort path.
There is no functional impact; after this work queue is flushed
unconditionally if its pending.

This removes the waitcount optimization.  Test of repeated
iptables-restore of a ~60k kubernetes ruleset doesn't indicate
a slowdown.  In case the counter is needed after all for some workloads
we can revert this and increment the refcount for the
!= NFT_PREPARE_TRANS case to avoid the increment/decrement imbalance.

While at it, also flush for match case, this was an oversight
in the original patch.

Applied, thanks.
