The find_ie() function uses a size_t for the len parameter, and
directly uses len as a loop variable.  If any received packets
are malformed, it is possible for the decrease of len to overflow,
and since the result is unsigned, the loop will not terminate.
Change it to a signed int so the loop conditional works for
negative values.

This fixes the following soft lockup:
