conntrack: deprecate nfct_sizeof() and nfct_maxsize() functions
These functions are evil since they allow the use of memcpy() instead of nfct_copy(). This is a problem because it violates the design principle that the library follows, that is to provide opaque objects in which the client code does not care on the binary layout.
