[NETFILTER]: ULOG/nfnetlink_log: Use better default value for 'nlbufsiz'
Performance tests showed that ULOG may fail on heavy loaded systems because of failed order-N allocations (N >= 1). The default value of 4096 is not optimal in the sense that it actually allocates _two_ contigous physical pages. Reasoning: ULOG uses alloc_skb(), which adds another ~300 bytes for skb_shared_info. This patch sets the default value to NLMSG_GOODSIZE and adds some documentation at the top.
