| Here, should check (len > DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN - 3 - repeat_first)?
| 
| if len == DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN - 2, then
| 
| tot_len = 3 + repeat_first + len == (DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN + 1 +
| repeat_first)
| 
| The total length of this option will larger than DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN.
| 
in linux/dccp.h
/* maximum size of a single TLV-encoded option (sans type/len bytes) */
#define DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN         253

So if we assume that len = DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN - 2 = 251, then
tot_len = 3 + 251 + repeat_first, which is
  * 254 if repeat_first = 0
  * 255 if repeat_first = 1
	
So it is correct. 

But your input is useful, since it relates to another question, one line
below in linux/dccp.h:

#define DCCP_CCID_LIST_MAX_LEN         (DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN - 2)

this value is the same as in the above test, so will revise to use
something like

#define DCCP_FEAT_MAX_SP_VALS	       (DCCP_SINGLE_OPT_MAXLEN - 2)

to limit the maximum number of server-priority values, in feat.h.

Thanks,
Gerrit
