Subject: [PATCH] net: dccp: mark expected switch fall-throughs

In preparation to enabling -Wimplicit-fallthrough, mark switch cases
where we are expecting to fall through.

Notice that for options.c file, I placed the "fall through" comment
on its own line, which is what GCC is expecting to find.

Signed-off-by: Gustavo A. R. Silva <>
This code was tested by compilation only (GCC 7.2.0 was used).
Please, verify if the actual intention of the code is to fall through.
