Subject: v2 [Patch 1/1] [BUG-FIX] udplite: Avoid u16 checksum coverage
	wrap-around

Dave, can you please have a look at the patch below?

As per earlier request, the default behaviour of rounding small setsockopt
values up to the minimum of 8 has not been changed.

The upshot is that the API now makes it impossible to set an illegal value.
The result has been tested and was found to work.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Patch v2 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
udplite: Protection against coverage value wrap-around

This patch clamps the cscov setsockopt values to a maximum of 0xFFFF.

Setsockopt values greater than 0xffff can cause an unwanted wrap-around.
Further, IPv6 jumbograms are not supported (RFC 3838, 3.5), so that values
greater than 0xffff are not even useful.

Further changes: fixed a typo in the documentation.

Signed-off-by: Gerrit Renker <gerrit@....abdn.ac.uk>
