FreeBSD IPv6 Divert socket adventures

This whole IPv6 Divert idea seems to be a little bit optimistic now. As all new technology (I wouldn't call IPv6 new technology, but still) not everything you have available now is supported in it.

So, how far did we get?

So, this is getting trickier and trickier for an userland guy like me to experiment with on a sunday afternoon... But I'm not going to give up! (yet)

On the other hand, an interesting paper by Dr. Goto (I'm not kidding) and friends available at IPV4/V6 NETWORK EMULATOR USING DIVERT SOCKET says:

We have ported divert socket to IPv6 by adding about 1000
lines of C program code either on FreeBSD and Linux kernel
for this research.
I have asked him if he wanted to share his code but haven't heard anything back from him.
