It's for both, although I only tested IPv4 at first. Here is a complete
test matrix of what works when:
CR = connection refused
T = connection timeout
C = connection established, but not working afterwards
OK = working
remote client | local client
COMMIT v4 v6 | v4 v6
CSUM 3/3 OK T | C T
CSUM 2/3 OK T | C T
CSUM 1/3 OK T | OK T
W/O CSUM OK T | C T
f2428ed5 OK T | CR CR
4856c84c OK CR | CR CR
f94fd041 (my last one) OK OK | CR CR
So the last time that IPv6 was working _at all_ was at my last commit of
the big v6 series...
