When mirror/redirect a skb to a different port, the ct info should be reset
for reclassification. Or the pkts will match unexpected rules. For example,
with following topology and commands:

       veth0 -+-------
       veth1 -+-------

 tc qdisc add dev veth0 clsact
 # The same with "action mirred egress mirror dev veth1" or "action mirred ingress redirect dev veth1"
 tc filter add dev veth0 egress chain 1 protocol ip flower ct_state +trk action mirred ingress mirror dev veth1
 tc filter add dev veth0 egress chain 0 protocol ip flower ct_state -inv action ct commit action goto chain 1
 tc qdisc add dev veth1 clsact
 tc filter add dev veth1 ingress chain 0 protocol ip flower ct_state +trk action drop

 ping <remove ip via veth0> &
 tc -s filter show dev veth1 ingress

With command 'tc -s filter show', we can find the pkts were dropped on
