> Check for and handle IPv6 extended headers so that tx checksum offload can be
> done. Thanks to Tom Herbert for noticing this problem. Note that the goto back
> to process the final protocol value can never result in a loop, because it cannot
> be yet another extended header. Handling them in this manner avoids adding
> further checks to the non-extended header hot path.
