Subject: [PATCH] IPV6 : Some cleanups in include/net/ipv6.h

1) struct ip6_flowlabel : moves 'users' field to avoid two 32bits holes for 64bit arches. Shrinks by 8 bytes sizeof(struct ip6_flowlabel)

2) ipv6_addr_cmp() and ipv6_addr_copy() dont need (void *) casts :
Compiler might take into account natural alignement of in6_addr structs to emit better code for memcpy()/memcmp()
Casts to (void *) force byte accesses.

3) ipv6_addr_prefix() optimization :
Better to clear whole struct, as compiler can emit better code for memset(addr, 0, 16) (2 stores on x86_64), and avoid some conditional branches.

# size vmlinux.after vmlinux.before
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
5262262  647612  557432 6467306  62aeea vmlinux.after
5262550  647612  557432 6467594  62b00a vmlinux.before

thats 288 bytes saved.
