src: allow to use nfct handler for conntrack and expectations at the same time
This patch re-works the callback handling to allow the use the same socket to send/receive commands and listen to events of both conntrack and expectation subsystems. Now you can register one callback for conntrack and one for expectation with the same handler with no problems (before this patch, this was not possible, you required two different handlers).

sure you use recent versions of libnetfilter_conntrack and, in case that
you are using the old API, consider porting your application to the new one.
+Since libnetfilter_conntrack >= 0.9.1, you can use the same handler obtained
+via nfct_open() to register conntrack and expectation callbacks (before this
+version, this was not possible).
