IPv6 as a module might have some glitches... it keeps a full bunch of
periodic timers inside... it will get better with time.

locks with or without interrupts enabled ? i.e. can you do
Ctl+Alt+ScrollLock ? if so tells us the EIP (after looking in
where the kernel is looping.

You want to receive ipv4 via ppp and pass data as v6 packets ? :-)
Not that it cannot be done. But hasn't been done yet.

FAQs are on their way.

The TCP and UDP ports really are shared between v4/v6 but we would need
the masquerading support.
