Hm, while unlikely, the IPv6 packet / header payload length might be
shorter than the frame / skb size.
And even though it wouldn't crash reading over the IPv6 packet
length, especially as skb_header_pointer() is used, I think we should
still avoid reading over the size indicated by the IPv6 header payload
length field, to stay protocol compliant.
Does that make sense?
