The "value" of "-m dscp -dscp" for iptables command

Hello,

I find a bug in the manpage of iptables:
The description for the value in option "-m dscp -dscp" should be
modified to 0~63.

The option can match 6 bit DSCP field within the TOS field in the IP
header.
So the range for the option should be 0~(2^6-1)úČthat is 0~63.

1) use "iptables -m dscp --dscp 63" :
1. iptables -A INPUT -m dscp --dscp 63
2. iptables -L INPUT | grep "DSCP match 0x3f"

I have made a patch for the manpage of the iptables-1.3.5-1.2.1.

The content of the patch:

diff -ru iptables-1.3.5.org/extensions/libipt_dscp.man
