Subject: [PATCH] netfilter: nf_nat_sip: fix incorrect handling of EBUSY for
 RTCP expectation

commit 3f509c689a07a4aa989b426893d8491a7ffcc410 upstream.

We're hitting bug while trying to reinsert an already existing

kernel BUG at kernel/timer.c:895!
invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP
Call Trace:
 [<ffffffffa0069563>] nf_ct_expect_related_report+0x4a0/0x57a [nf_conntrack]
 [<ffffffff812d423a>] ? in4_pton+0x72/0x131
 [<ffffffffa00ca69e>] ip_nat_sdp_media+0xeb/0x185 [nf_nat_sip]
 [<ffffffffa00b5b9b>] set_expected_rtp_rtcp+0x32d/0x39b [nf_conntrack_sip]
 [<ffffffffa00b5f15>] process_sdp+0x30c/0x3ec [nf_conntrack_sip]

 [<ffffffffa00ca738>] ? ip_nat_sdp_media+0x185/0x185 [nf_nat_sip]

We have to remove the RTP expectation if the RTCP expectation hits EBUSY
since we keep trying with other ports until we succeed.
