Neat.  Putting ipv6 in a kernel module is a good idea.  Takes up quite
some RAM I guess, and most people won't need it anyways (BTW /me thinks
we should also move sound, vfat, ext2 into on-demand kernel modules to
free up RAM).  Installing the ipk by default would be nice, though.

When running dropbear via xinetd we should just need another xinetd
config file to listen on the ipv6 port 22?  Do we already use xinetd?
Would also save some RAM.  Will try to have a look this weekend.
