It is built modular, but CONFIG_IPV6 is one of those broken config
options where setting it to 'm' actually changes things inside the
_main_ kernel image. It doesn't _just_ cause the extra module to be
built.

I don't understand which of those changes is causing a problem for Stan,
but it's probably best to try to fix that directly so that having the
ipv6 module available but unloaded is no longer a problem.

Stan, can you elaborate?
