   2Options for the ipv6 module are supplied as parameters at load time.
   3
   4Module options may be given as command line arguments to the insmod
   5or modprobe command, but are usually specified in either
   6/etc/modules.d/*.conf configuration files, or in a distro-specific
   7configuration file.
   8
   9The available ipv6 module parameters are listed below.  If a parameter
  10is not specified the default value is used.
  11
  12The parameters are as follows:
  13
  14disable
  15
  16        Specifies whether to load the IPv6 module, but disable all
  17        its functionality.  This might be used when another module
  18        has a dependency on the IPv6 module being loaded, but no
  19        IPv6 addresses or operations are desired.
  20
  21        The possible values and their effects are:
  22
  23        0
  24                IPv6 is enabled.
  25
  26                This is the default value.
  27
  28        1
  29                IPv6 is disabled.
  30
  31                No IPv6 addresses will be added to interfaces, and
  32                it will not be possible to open an IPv6 socket.
  33
  34                A reboot is required to enable IPv6.
  35
  36autoconf
  37
  38        Specifies whether to enable IPv6 address autoconfiguration
  39        on all interfaces.  This might be used when one does not wish
  40        for addresses to be automatically generated from prefixes
  41        received in Router Advertisements.
  42
  43        The possible values and their effects are:
  44
  45        0
  46                IPv6 address autoconfiguration is disabled on all interfaces.
  47
  48                Only the IPv6 loopback address (::1) and link-local addresses
  49                will be added to interfaces.
  50
  51        1
  52                IPv6 address autoconfiguration is enabled on all interfaces.
  53
  54                This is the default value.
  55
  56disable_ipv6
  57
  58        Specifies whether to disable IPv6 on all interfaces.
  59        This might be used when no IPv6 addresses are desired.
  60
  61        The possible values and their effects are:
  62
  63        0
  64                IPv6 is enabled on all interfaces.
  65
  66                This is the default value.
  67
  68        1
  69                IPv6 is disabled on all interfaces.
  70
  71                No IPv6 addresses will be added to interfaces.
