the verifier understands only constant part of the packet pointer.
Without additional 'if' above the statement:
if ((void *)tcph + thlen > data_end)
will add variables length 'thlen' to pkt pointer which will become
another pkt pointer (with different id).
That pointer would need 'pkt + const_range > data_end' to have valid access.

We hit this issue in the past when folks wanted to use bpf_csum_diff() helper
with variable size.
It's possible to extend the verifier to support that but it's intrusive,
since variable part would need to passed around to a bunch of check* functions.
I think it's tricky, but doable. Looking forward to patches :)
