I think all your comments are valid points, but are rather topics
for separate patches. In this one I've addressed one issue: the structure of
ifs and elses is so deeply nested, that it lead to one logic mistake:
broken packets which cannot be corrected are still not dropped.

Even my patch has two changes in one: error correction and style correction,
but I consider this justified because one was a result of another.
