May it crash the kernel because it's assuming is set? If so, then
I'd appreciate if you send us a patch to
netfilter-devel at vger.kernel.org.

Please, use the nf-next.git tree to patch nf_flow_offload_ip_hook()
and nf_flow_offload_ip6_hook(), it's rather late, we'll request a
-stable submission for this if needed.
