Thanks for the patch.  If time permits, I'll attempt to get V6 working
before I leave for DC (i've got my own little v6 network at home).

Programming the multicast filter looks fairly straightforward, thought
may not be strictly necessary since the device is currently set up in
receive-all-multicasts mode by default ...
