Eyeballing now, only a couple of comments.

- Initialisation of iph and ipv6h can be moved before the while()
loop. The compiler probably does this anyway.
- Whether it is worth the complexity of restoring the
skb->encapsulation check within cake_get_tcphdr to handle other cases
of encapsulated v4/v6 traffic. I may find some time to test this later

Everything else looks good to me, much cleaner.

Thank you so much for your efforts so far in getting cake upstream,
and in particular to rescue ACK filtering. We may have to send you a
real cake!
