    Linux 5.0 Netfilter bug

    On two desktop systems running Debian Buster with Linux kernel version 5.0.7, I was experiencing a problem when Shorewall6 was stopping or restarting. This kernel backtrace appeared in the logs: On one of the two systems, this would result in the system failing to shut down properly: the kernel would hang completely when trying to shut down. The problem is known, and can be fixed by this patch, which has been queued in the stable 5.0 tree. It will hopefully be included in the 5.0.8 version.
