On the contrary, 4.2BSD never forwarded IP options. IP options
were updated if necesssary (not necessarily correctly), stripped from
the packet, then freed in ip_output without inserting them back into
the packet. (I don't remember that the typo in ip_stripoptions
actually crashed the machine, but it obviously wasn't right.)
