Hi,

Thanks for your comment. As far as I understand the flow, any changes 
done to fl6 inside ip6_datagram_send_ctl is to be disregarded. That's 
how I understand the comment:
/* Changes to txoptions and flow info are not implemented, yet.
  * Drop the options, fl6 is wiped below.
  */

Thanks,
Aya
