Re: Bindv6only once again

* Bastian Blank <waldi@debian.org>, 2010-06-12, 11:01:
In netbase 4.38, Marco d'Itri has unilaterally decided to change the
value of the net.ipv6.bindv6only sysctl to 1.  This change has the
following effects:

 (1) it violates POSIX 2008, Volume 2, Section 2.10.20;
 (2) it violates RFC 3493, Section 5.3;
 (3) it breaks software that is written to comply to POSIX, most notably
     Sun's Java.

Please start with "fixing" the FreeBSD kernel. It only supports this
mode of operation.
