Hi Everyone,

I’ve been working on act_ctinfo toward getting that upstream and it is getting closer.  Since that module along with act_connmark does its own conntrack lookups I’ve been looking at what they do and what we do in cake.

Two patches attached - one is a simple variable elimination with no functional change.  The second changes/simplifies the conntrack tuple lookup & usage.  I’ve had a play and I don’t think I’ve broken any of the host fairness BUT it could do with some more testing, that’s where you come in… probably Pete & George :-)
