Subject: [PATCH v2] net-next: improve handling of ICMP_EXT_ECHO icmp type

Introduce a helper for icmp type checking - icmp_is_valid_type.

There is a number of code paths handling ICMP packets. To check
icmp type validity, some of those code paths perform the check
`type <= NR_ICMP_TYPES`. Since the introduction of ICMP_EXT_ECHO
and ICMP_EXT_ECHOREPLY (RFC 8335), this check is no longer correct.

To fix this inconsistency and avoid further problems with future
ICMP types, the patch inserts the icmp_is_valid type helper
wherever it is required. The helper checks if the type is less than
NR_ICMP_TYPES or is equal to ICMP_EXT_ECHO/REPLY.

NR_ICMP_TYPES could theoretically be increased to ICMP_EXT_ECHOREPLY
(43), but that would not make sense as types 19-41 are not used.
