netfilter: tcp conntrack: fix unacknowledged data detection with NAT

When NAT helpers change the TCP packet size, the highest seen sequence
number needs to be corrected. This is currently only done upwards, when
the packet size is reduced the sequence number is unchanged. This causes
TCP conntrack to falsely detect unacknowledged data and decrease the

Fix by updating the highest seen sequence number in both directions after
packet mangling.
