 don't include all headers

Hi Willem,

Thanks for the comments, see replies below.

Ah, yes, I forgot we can use this check.

Do you mean check the header like

if (nexthdr == IPPROTO_ICMPV6)
	offset = offset + seizeof(struct icmp6hdr);
else if (nexthdr == ...)
	offset = ...
else
	offset += 1;

if (frag_off == htons(IP6_MF) && offset > skb->len) {
	icmpv6_param_prob(skb, ICMPV6_HDR_INCOMP, 0);
	return -1;
}

Another questions is how to define the list, does TCP/UDP/SCTP/ICMPv6 enough?

Thanks
Hangbin
