Hi Jiri,

I'm sorry but I'm having a bit of trouble understanding how best to
structure the extraction of ICMP and ND.

The way I see things is this:

* ICMP extraction may occur for IPv4 or IPv6 although currently neither
  IPv4 nor IPv6 is a condition of ICMP extraction.
* ND extraction may only occur for IPv6
* ND extraction may only occur for certain ICMP code/type values;
  thus ICMP extraction should occur before ND extraction.

I wonder if a good alternative to the approach I took above in my patch
would  be to provide:
* ICMP extraction conditional on IPv4 and;
* ICMP extraction conditional on IPv6 followed by
  ND extraction conditional on ICMP type and code
