I want to keep the patch as is, but change the description:

[PATCH] ipvs: fix wrong icmp_offset in ip_vs_nat_icmp_v6
From: Ard van Breemen <ard@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Fix regression introduced in 3.8 with commit 9195bb8e381d81
("ipv6: improve ipv6_find_hdr() to skip empty routing headers")
which broke commit 63dca2c0b0e7a9
("ipvs: Fix faulty IPv6 extension header handling in IPVS").
by a small change in ipv6_find_hdr: finding specific protocols is not
supported anymore, use -1 instead. Solves (pmtud) problems caused by
damaged IPv6 headers in NAT-ed ICMP packets.

Do you and Ansis agree with me?
