ipv6: check raw payload size correctly in ioctl

In situations where an skb is paged, the transport header pointer and
tail pointer can be the same because the skb contents are in frags.

This results in ioctl(SIOCINQ/FIONREAD) incorrectly returning a
length of 0 when the length to receive is actually greater than zero.

skb->len is already correctly set in ip6_input_finish() with
pskb_pull(), so use skb->len as it always returns the correct result
for both linear and paged data.
