[ipxe-devel] IPv6

I'm attempting network booting in an IPv6-only network environment using
iPXE. Looking at the source code, IPv6 support appears to be implemented
(src/net/ipv6.c and src/net/icmpv6.c), but I cannot figure out how to
actually make use of it. For example, the "dhcp" command doesn't perform
ICMPv6 Router Solicitations, and "set net0/ip 2001:db8::1/64" fails with
an «invalid argument» error message.

Any pointers on how to use iPXE in IPv6 networks would be greatly
