[NETFILTER]: ulog: fix panic on SMP kernels
Fix kernel panic on various SMP machines. The culprit is a null ub->skb in ulog_send(). If ulog_timer() has already been scheduled on one CPU and is spinning on the lock, and ipt_ulog_packet() flushes the queue on another CPU by calling ulog_send() right before it exits, there will be no skbuff when ulog_timer() acquires the lock and calls ulog_send(). Cancelling the timer in ulog_send() doesn't help because it has already been scheduled and is running on the first CPU. Similar problem exists in ebt_ulog.c and nfnetlink_log.c.
