Make sure we skip the current hook from where the packet was enqueued,
otherwise the packets gets enqueued over and over again.

Fixes: e3b37f11e6e4 ("netfilter: replace list_head with single linked list")
Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
I managed to reproduce this with a simple test.

 # iptables -I OUTPUT -j QUEUE
 # cd libnetfilter_queue/utils/
 # ./nfqnl_test

Without my patch, netfilter munches packets that are reinjected.

@Aaron: Please, I'd appreciate if you can have a look to confirm this bug
        and the fix. Thanks.
