iptables/extensions: make bundled options work again
When using a bundled option like "-ptcp", 'argv[optind-1]' would logically point to "-ptcp", but this is obviously not right. 'optarg' is needed instead, which if properly offset to "tcp". Not all places change optind-based access to optarg; where look-ahead is needed, such as for tcp's --tcp-flags option for example, optind is ok. References: Signed-off-by: Jan Engelhardt <>
