IPv6 atomic fragment optimizations

Description

The draft at http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6man-ipv6-atomic-fragments-00 should be revisited if it gets published. According to section 3, atomic fragment headers can just be ignored and "reassembly" skipped. That also should improve the case where a packet has multiple atomic fragment headers (see attached pcap), because currently Bro doesn't recursively reassemble the inner atomic fragments, it just stops processing the packet and gives the "unknown_protocol_44" weird to indicate there was packet with multiple fragment headers.
