The example was stale once the entries check was added. The entries
check has now been removed due to the source of registration records
being orphanned from their syscall record being found and solved in the
ghak120 (norule missing accompanying) issue.

However, there are ebtables nat and filter tables being added that are
being automatically reaped if there are no entries and there is no
syscall accompanying them. I don't yet know if it is being reaped by
userspace with an async drop, or if it is the kernel that is deciding to
garbage collect that table after a period of disuse.

Some quick instrumentation says it is kernel thread [kworker/u4:2-events_unbound]

pid=153 uid=0 auid=4294967295 tty=(none) ses=4294967295 subj=system_u:system_r:kernel_t:s0 comm="kworker/u4:2" exe=(null)
