Fragmented IPv6 packets simply didn't work with NPF until Christos
committed a couple of patches last month.  If your sources are older
than February 20th, you won't have any luck: NPF tries to reassemble
(which it's not even allowed to do, by the RFCs), and fails.  The code
change makes NPF evaluate the first fragment, and unconditionally pass
non-first fragments.  It now works correctly, and by the book.  :)

Most people who graduate with CS degrees don't understand the significance
of Lisp.  Lisp is the most important idea in computer science.  --Alan Kay
