ah_output_done, as the callback function for the digest function, receives the exit status in err, and calls xfrm_output_resume, which also takes a parameter called err. Assuming that the digest function exited successfully, the value of err is 0, and prevents xfrm_output_resume from calling ah_output, which calls the digest function, again. However, setting the value of err to ah->nexthdr gives err a positive protocol value, resulting in infinite calls of the digest function, preventing the sending of the packet to the network.
It appears that, except for the first call, xfrm_output_resume should take err directly from the value that ah_output_done receives, like esp_output_done, and unlike ah_input_done, which calls xfrm_input_resume, which explicitly takes a parameter called nexthdr. When the change was made, ICMP would work with ah transport mode.
