    I might not look for the right thing, but there are only two places
    where register_gifconf is used: in net/ipv4/devinet.c and
    net/decnet/dn_dev.c. There is no support for IPv6-only interfaces and
    interfaces for other protocols. So in addition to your change only the
    DECnet stuff needs changing.

    I'll try the patch asap. Thanks,
