 This is my /etc/ipf6.conf:
 pass  in quick proto ipv6-icmp from any to any icmp-type echo keep state
 block in log quick all
 This appears in the logs if I try to ping6 my link-local address from
 another node:
 Jul 22 05:15:46 n74 ipmon[24047]: 05:15:45.945017 rtk0 @0:2 b fe80::20b:dbff:fea9:434d -> ff02::1:ff4a:372d PR icmpv6 len 40 72 icmpv6 neighborsolicit/0 IN multicast
 So if "neighborsolicit" is not a valid keyword why is ipmon printing it?
 I guess people expect the types printed by ipmon to be valid keywords
 in the ipf{6}.conf files.
