Thank you very much.

My patch is the first step.
I think there are these TODOs around IPv6 IPsec as far as I remember.

- Extension Header Processing on inbound:
As a result of IPv6 IPsec support, Extension Header processing is devided
into ipv6_parse_exthdrs and ipproto->handler. I think it is better to merge
other Extension Header handling into ipproto->handler.

- Fragmentation support on outbound:
We should change ipv6_build_xmit like ip_append_data style to support
fragmentation with IPsec.

- Removing duplicate codes, clean up and improveing performance.

- Considering relation of IPv6 IPsec and Mobile IPv6. This is future stuff.
