ipv6: Add GSO support on forwarding path
Currently we disallow GSO packets on the IPv6 forward path. This patch fixes this. Note that I discovered that our existing GSO MTU checks (e.g., IPv4 forwarding) are buggy in that they skip the check altogether, when they really should be checking gso_size + header instead. I have also been lazy here in that I haven't bothered to segment the GSO packet by hand before generating an ICMP message. Someone should add that to be 100% correct.
