Subject: [PATCH] netfilter: xt_u32: Accept negative offset in AT operation

Remove unnecessary uint wraparound checks which prohibited two's
complement representation of negative number in "@" operation.
It is required to test last N bytes of variable length formats and to be
consistent with libxt parser which silently replaces negative number by
its compliment.

For example, --u32 '0&0xFFFF@...0' will read IPv4 total length header
then add complement of -4 to test if the last 4 bytes are 0. Previously,
it would never match as (total length)+0xFFFFFFFC always overflow.
