ipv6: Remove options header when setsockopt's optlen is 0
Shan Wei [Thu, 19 Jun 2008 23:29:39 +0000 (16:29 -0700)]
Remove the sticky Hop-by-Hop options header by calling setsockopt()
for IPV6_HOPOPTS with a zero option length, per RFC3542.

Routing header and Destination options header does the same as
Hop-by-Hop options header.
