From: Jan Engelhardt <jengelh@medozas.de>

This member is taking up a "long" per match, yet is only used by one
module out of the roughly 90 modules, ip6t_hbh. ip6t_hbh can be
restructured a little to accomodate for the lack of the .data member.
This variant uses checking the par->match address, which should avoid
having to add two extra functions, including calls, i.e.

(hbh_mt6: call hbhdst_mt6(skb, par, NEXTHDR_OPT),
dst_mt6: call hbhdst_mt6(skb, par, NEXTHDR_DEST))
