Yes, sorry. nf_ct_frag6_queue is mostly derived from ip6_frag_queue
so any bugs in one might also exist in other.
Thats all I wanted to say here. I'll check this tomorrow.

It currently returns -EINVAL in cases where skb wasn't changed/altered
(e.g. because it doesn't have a fragment header), so we should ACCEPT in
that case.

As for 'buggy' packet, I think its ok to mimic ip6_frag_queue, i.e.
if it tosses returning NF_DROP under same circumstance seems ok.

(Passing however will -- on ingress side -- cause snmp stat increments
in ipv6 reassembly, this still might be desireable).

I'll check where undo might be possible/not too hard.

Thanks Eric for debugging this!
