[PATCH] netfilter6: Skip extension headers when matching icmp6-type

Thu Sep 30 14:16:20 CEST 2004


This patch fixes a bug in the ip6_tables code when matching ICMP type and
code within ICMPv6 packets. The icmpv6 packet matcher expects the nexthdr
to be ICMPv6 and does not deal with hop-by-hop headers etc.
