Subject[PATCH] IPv6: Fix Length of Authentication Extension Header
From
Hello!

This patch fixes calculation of length of IPv6 Authentication Extension
Header.

RFC2402: 2.2 Payload Length
:
This 8-bit field specifies the length of AH in 32-bit words (4-byte
units), minus "2". ...

This is against linux-2.4.20, 2.5.54.
(2.2.x series have similar bug, too.)

Thanks in advance.
