Thanks for the patch but it's far too late for 2.2.  I'll not add it
before the release.

Also, I won't add the patches for #4 above.  IPv6 ins Linux 2.2 is
broken.  Therefore people who are honest about using IPv6 have to
update.  It is wrong to pollute the code with compatibility code for
non-standard broken code.

If you can remove this code and resend it I'll consider it for 2.2.1.
