Pablo Neira - Aug. 5, 2013, 3:21 p.m.
Fix a possible off by one access since optlen()
touches opt[offset+1] unsafely when i == tcp_hdrlen(skb) - 1.

This patch replaces tcp_hdrlen() by the local variable tcp_hdrlen
that stores the TCP header length, to save some cycles.

Reported-by: Julian Anastasov <ja@ssi.bg>

v2: Avoid possible off by one access from the for loop condition,
    based on idea from Julian.
