    netfilter: remove ip_conntrack* sysctl compat code

    This backward compatibility has been around for more than ten years,
    since Yasuyuki Kozakai introduced IPv6 in conntrack. These days, we have
    alternate /proc/net/nf_conntrack* entries, the ctnetlink interface and
    the conntrack utility got adopted by many people in the user community
    according to what I observed on the netfilter user mailing list.

    So let's get rid of this.

    Note that nf_conntrack_htable_size and unsigned int nf_conntrack_max do
    not need to be exported as symbol anymore.
