Thanks for the link, Jarno, but that patch doesn't help at all.

FWIW, removing the following case statement makes the test pass:

case OVS_CT_ATTR_EVENTMASK:
info->have_eventmask = true;
info->eventmask = nla_get_u32(a);
break;

But changing it to something like the below also blows up the machine:

case OVS_CT_ATTR_EVENTMASK:
info->have_eventmask = false;
info->eventmask = nla_get_u32(a);
break;

Also bad:

case OVS_CT_ATTR_EVENTMASK:
break;

I'm not saying these tests make any sense, just saying :-)
