Well, I spent time on my spare time to work on extending Keepalived to support
IPv6. I would specially thanks people at pcextreme.nl & pictura-im.nl for
sponsoring this release and for their time spent testing and reporting issues.
This release extend the whole framework to support IPv4 as IPv6 in the same
code path. Some clean-up has been made also in order to prepare for next step
While I was releasing this code, I just realized Keepalived turn 10years...
damn, ... time is running...

* keepalived-1.2.2 released.
* IPv6 : extended autoconf script to support libnl detection.
IPv6 IPVS kernel subsystem is reachable through
generic netlink configuration interface.
* IPv6 : Enhanced libipvs-2.6 to support generic netlink
configuration interface. If generic netlink is
available with kernel then it will be the
prefered path to configure IPVS.
* IPv6 : Enhanced the whole checker API to use
* IPv6 : Enhanced the whole core framework to use
* IPv6 : Enhanced all checkers to use sockaddr_storage.
* fixed a long time pending issue in all checkers. If
first connection attempt to remote peer was failing
no more check was performed to service... Up on error
connecting remote peer simply register a new timer for
next check. This is specially needed in IPv6 context
where a unreachable host can be reached at delayed time.
* code clean-up: revisited the code to use more POSIX
compliant declaration. thread typedef to use thread_t
instead. revisisted checker framework to use POSIX typdef
more to come...
