It's hard to silence this because Smatch stores the current user
controlled range list, not what it was initially. I wrote all this code
to detect bounds checking errors, so there wasn't any need to save the
range list before the bounds check. Since "op" is a u32, I can't even
go by the type of the index....

Oh... Huh. This is a bug in smatch. That line looks like:

p->ule_sndu_type = ntohs(*(__be16 *)(p->ule_next_hdr + ((p->ule_dbit ? 2 : 3) * ETH_ALEN)));

Smatch see the ntohs() and marks everything inside it as untrusted
network data. I'll fix this.
