qetharp: support ipv6 for query arp cache for HiperSockets

For HiperSockets (real and GuestLAN) in layer 3 mode, qetharp 
is now able to show IPv6 entries. These entries are only shown
if qetharp is called with -6 or --ipv6 in conjunction with -q.

Comment 8 John Jarvis 2012-01-31 15:56:49 UTC
This enhancement request was evaluated by the full Red Hat Enterprise Linux
team for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor release.   As a result
of this evaluation, Red Hat has tentatively approved inclusion of this feature
in the next Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update minor release.   While it is a goal
to include this enhancement in the next minor release of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux, the enhancement is not yet committed for inclusion in the next minor
release pending the next phase of actual code integration and successful Red
Hat and partner testing.
