Looks good, one minor suggestion.

Can you change this to:

struct nft_secmark {
u32 secid;
char *ctx;

We don't need ctx in the packetpath, so better to keep
the struct size small.

You can change this to
priv->ctx = nla_strdup(tb[NFTA_SECMARK_CTX], GFP_KERNEL);
if (!priv->ctx)
return -ENOMEM;

But other than this i think this is ready to be applied,
thanks a lot for making this happen.
