Description

Currently we automatically configure a link-local IPv6 address. Add support for router solicitation / router advertisement in order to get:

  • network prefix / globally routable address
  • default router address
  • DNS server address

See

  • RFC 4862 IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration
  • RFC 6106 IPv6 Router Advertisement Options for DNS Configuration

See the feature branch https://code.launchpad.net/~as-s/helenos/ipv6 where the functionality was (at least partially) implemented, but it hasn't been cherrypicked into mainline yet. The mainline has diverged from this feature branch in the meantime, but it can still serve as a proof-of-concept.
