It should be
IPv6 header needs 20 bytes more required by IPv4 header.

There were some problems with Mbed-OS using LWIP code and IPv6.

Root cause was related pbuf's size.

It's desirable to avoid using multiple buffers increase LWIP PBUF_POOL_BUFSIZE.

This involves selecting the default size by IP type.
IPv4 header needs 20 bytes more required by IPv6 header.

Proposed changes in opt.h


#if !defined PBUF_POOL_BUFSIZE || defined _DOXYGEN_


#if !defined PBUF_POOL_BUFSIZE || defined _DOXYGEN_
#elif LWIP_IPV4
