	As attached, I have committed a change to support IPv6CP.
	The interface will try to negotiate IPv6CP with the other end,
	if the interface has IPv6 link-local address configured to it
	(usually, when you perform "ifconfig up" it will be there)

	though it works just fine for me with the condition mentioned below,
	there can be some merge mistakes or some other issues.
	please send any problem to me (or to PR database).  Thanks!

>- do not share ppp sequence number across protocols.
>- if LCP proto-rej is received, drop the protocol mentioned by the message.
>  this is to be friendly with non-IPv6 peer (if the peer complains due to
>  lack of IPv6CP, drop IPv6CP).  this basically implements "RXJ+" state

>- cleanup debugging message.  always print blank just before message.
>- if the peer uses the same MAC address as our side (pretty unlikely)
>  the code may go into req-rej loop.
