Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2003-10-06 18:28:27 UTC
An alternative exists, although it is somewhat intrusive relatively to qeth. I sent it for review by Utz Bacher on 9/23/2003. He replied on 9/29 with: Re. the large patch you sent -- the idea sounds feasible, but I need some more days. I won't be a change short-term (i.e. RHEL 3), will it? Our test guys would need to go over it accurately anyway.

Created attachment 94952 [details] Remove in6_dev_get from qeth
Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2003-11-13 21:26:47 UTC
Received message from Utz today: ------ Re. the list management. We concluded that we can't contain the test effort to guarantuee that it won't cause any customer problems, despite any first tests and review didn't reveal anything worrysome. Therefore we say: rather want we qeth to be more or less stable as proven since 2000, than capable of IPv6. We will however adopt the code and incorporate into our 2.6 changes (my personal opinion is, that there are quite some changes in the 2.6 qeth to come).
