2	Options for the ipv6 module are supplied as parameters at load time.
3	
4	Module options may be given as command line arguments to the insmod
5	or modprobe command, but are usually specified in either
6	/etc/modules.d/*.conf configuration files, or in a distro-specific
7	configuration file.
8	
9	The available ipv6 module parameters are listed below.  If a parameter
10	is not specified the default value is used.
11	
12	The parameters are as follows:
13	
14	disable
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	
36	autoconf
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	
56	disable_ipv6
57

59		This might be used when no IPv6 addresses are desired.
60

62	
63		0
64			IPv6 is enabled on all interfaces.
65	
66			This is the default value.
