ipv6 RAW: Disallow IPPROTO_IPV6-level IPV6_CHECKSUM socket option on ICMPv6 sockets.
YOSHIFUJI Hideaki [Fri, 25 Apr 2008 04:30:38 +0000 (21:30 -0700)]
RFC3542 tells that IPV6_CHECKSUM socket option in the IPPROTO_IPV6
level is not allowed on ICMPv6 sockets.  IPPROTO_RAW level
IPV6_CHECKSUM socket option (a Linux extension) is still allowed.
