Comment 1 Phil Sutter 2019-09-10 13:17:19 UTC
Use this ticket to consolidate conntrack-tools issues on Big Endian architectures for RHEL8. So far, there is one upstream commit to backport:

commit f27901afb038b07532b4c31cb77bbc0bd8068253
Author: Phil Sutter <phil@nwl.cc>

    conntrack: Fix CIDR to mask conversion on Big Endian
    Code assumed host architecture to be Little Endian. Instead produce a
    proper mask by pushing the set bits into most significant position and
    apply htonl() on the result.

and one more fix not yet accepted:

Second upstream commit to backport:

commit 7c5f4b390f4b8dc02aceb0a18ed7c59ff14f392c
Author: Phil Sutter <phil@nwl.cc>

    nfct: helper: Fix NFCTH_ATTR_PROTO_L4NUM size
    Kernel defines NFCTH_TUPLE_L4PROTONUM as of type NLA_U8. When adding a
    helper, NFCTH_ATTR_PROTO_L4NUM attribute is correctly set using
    nfct_helper_attr_set_u8(), though when deleting
    nfct_helper_attr_set_u32() was incorrectly used. Due to alignment, this
    causes trouble only on Big Endian.
    Fixes: 5e8f64f46cb1d ("conntrackd: add cthelper infrastructure (+ example FTP helper)")
