Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 6/7] 6lowpan: fix tag variable size

Function lowpan_alloc_new_frame() takes u8 tag as an argument. However,
its only caller, lowpan_process_data() passes down a u16. Hence,
the tag value can get corrupted. This prevent 6lowpan fragment reassembly of a
message when the fragment tag value is over 256.
