+ * nfexp_cmp - compare two expectation objects
+ * \param exp1 pointer to a valid expectation object

+ * \param flags flags
+ * This function only compare attribute set in both objects, by default
+ * the comparison is not strict, ie. if a certain attribute is not set in one
+ * of the objects, then such attribute is not used in the comparison.
+ * If you want more strict comparisons, you can use the appropriate flags
+ * to modify this behaviour (see NFCT_CMP_STRICT and NFCT_CMP_MASK).
+ * The available flags are:
+ * - NFCT_CMP_STRICT: the compared objects must have the same attributes
+ * and the same values, otherwise it returns that the objects are
+ * different.
+ * - NFCT_CMP_MASK: the first object is used as mask, this means that
+ * if an attribute is present in exp1 but not in exp2, this function
+ * returns that the objects are different.
+ * Other existing flags that are used by nfct_cmp() are ignored.
+ * If both conntrack object are equal, this function returns 1, otherwise
+ * 0 is returned.
