	attempting to bring up V6 on a rl interface doesn't work.

	boot system with INET6 and an ethernet connection through rl0
	bring up interface
	try to ping6 the link-local address.

	run tcpdump.  notice that ipv6 starts working because the
	interface is in promiscuous mode.

	whacking the driver to listen to all multicasts is an ok
	workaround, but..

	?? fix the code which programs the multicast filter
