-sO for IPv6

I've just added support for -6 -sO (IPv6 protocol scan). This works by
scanning all 256 possible values of the Next Header field, which is
analogous to the Protocol field in IPv4. Instead of ICMP Protocol
Unreachable to mean a closed protocol, it uses ICMPv6 Parameter Problem,
Unrecognized Next Header. Here is the output of scanning scanme.

# nmap -sO -6 scanmev6.nmap.org --reason
Nmap scan report for scanmev6.nmap.org (2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:fe93:cd19)
