This patchset improves the IPv6 extension header infrastructure
to make extension headers more usable and scalable.

  - Reorganize extension header files to separate out common
    API components
  - Create common TLV handler that will can be used in other use
    cases (e.g. segment routing TLVs, UDP options)
  - Allow registration of TLV handlers
  - Elaborate on the TLV tables to include more characteristics
  - Add a netlink interface to set TLV parameters (such as
    alignment requirements, authorization to send, etc.)
  - Enhance validation of TLVs being sent. Validation is strict
    (unless overridden by admin) following that sending clause
    of the robustness principle
  - Allow non-privileged users to set Hop-by-Hop and Destination
    Options if authorized by the admin

v2:
  - Fix build errors from missing include file.


Tom Herbert (7):
  ipeh: Create exthdrs_options.c and ipeh.h
  ipeh: Move generic EH functions to exthdrs_common.c
  ipeh: Generic TLV parser
  ip6tlvs: Registration of TLV handlers and parameters
  ip6tlvs: Add TX parameters
  ip6tlvs: Add netlink interface
  ip6tlvs: Validation of TX Destination and Hop-by-Hop options
