[Serusers] maxfwd module with Max-Forwards > 255 broken

I checked how SER would behave with large Max-Forwards values.
Paragraph 20.22 of RFC 3261 notes Max-Forwards to be anywhere between 0
and 255 but SER lacks a check for the upper boundry in the maxfwd module.

I'm not sure how the correct way to remove the broken header field and
introducing a correct one would be so I leave this for somebody who
knows :)
