Subject[PATCH 3.2 105/115] ax25: add link layer header validation function
3.2.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Willem de Bruijn <willemb@google.com>

[ Upstream commit ea47781c26510e5d97f80f9aceafe9065bd5e3aa ]

As variable length protocol, AX25 fails link layer header validation
tests based on a minimum length. header_ops.validate allows protocols
to validate headers that are shorter than hard_header_len. Implement
this callback for AX25.
