Well, it appears I was a *little* bit overenthousiastic; IPv6 isn't
*always* working. More specifically, rtsol fails with:

get_llflag() failed, anyway I'll try
sendmsg on ral0: Can't assign requested address

But not always. There seems to be a timing aspect to it. Every once in
a while, it'll work.
