Bug parsing TCP packet

Hi guys, I am working with nmap IPv6 OS fingerprinting code and I found
that when a TCP packet is padded to 32 bytes, there is a bug parsing its
TCP Options. It's because the libnetutil TCPHeader::getOption function
doesn't stop to iterate when a "End Of Options" option is found, so it
read the last padded zero as one more TCP option. In addition, it causes
that FPEngine::vectorize add more values to the "features" array, and
then it affects the final calculations when liblinear::predict_values is
I attached a .pcap so you can reproduce the bug.
