Since PR/32304, the ipv6 documentation is outdated (still mentions
that stf(4) is not a part of GENERIC). The following patch correct both
english and german documentation (not completely sure for the german one as
my german is quite old now :/).

I didn't correct the french version as I updated it in the beginning of
the week (conversion to XML and correction of few translation mistake).
It still need to be checked and commited. (the doc is available at:

BTW, shouldn't the doc mentions that will be shutted down by the 6th
of June 2006 ?
