netfilter: revert user-space expectation helper support
This patch partially reverts: 3d058d7 netfilter: rework user-space expectation helper support that was applied during the 3.2 development cycle. After this patch, the tree remains just like before patch bc01bef, that initially added the preliminary infrastructure. I decided to partially revert this patch because the approach that I proposed to resolve this problem is broken in NAT setups. Moreover, a new infrastructure will be submitted for the 3.3.x development cycle that resolve the existing issues while providing a neat solution. Since nobody has been seriously using this infrastructure in user-space, the removal of this feature should affect any know FOSS project (to my knowledge).
