[rpd] IPv6 Native Mass Market Deployment arrives in Kenya!

Thanks for all the congrats guys.

Lu,  The home CPE’s DO support IPv6 and any device behind the CPE that supports getting V6 addresses via RA gets their addresses and off they go.

In addition, while we do push DNS servers via RA on the CPE, we also set other-config-flag and run DHCPv6 with DNS servers only so that in the case of devices NOT supporting DNS via RA, they can get it via DHCP.

Basically, client applies, client gets CPE from us, client plugs in, and if his device is V6 enabled behind that CPE, it just works ☺

support ipv6, how IPv6 being used by end device?
