extension: libip6t_ipv6header: fix wrong headername in ipv6header for protocols
In the --help output and manpage for ipv6header the name for upper layer protocol headers was "proto", while in the code itself it's "prot" for the short form. Fixed by changing manpage and help output. Signed-off-by: Andreas Herz <> Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
