Minor request: german copyright law as an assumption of authorship for
authors marked in the work. When doing GPL enforcement I would prefer
any discussions about what derived from specifically means in this
case and whether this constitutes a normal statement of authorship,
and since this clearly contains a lot of literal code I have written,
please change this to something like

Copyright ... Thomas Graf
Copyright ... Patrick McHardy

...

Code partially derived from nft_hash.

Thanks!
