Since IPVS now does partial IPv6, should we finally move it from
"net/ipv4/ipvs" to "net" or to "net/netfilter"? I posted that patch a
long time ago, but that was before any of the actual v6 features, so
there was probably no interest.

Also, the tunables in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/vs/... apply to both v4 and
v6. Should we just duplicate them into /proc/sys/net/ipv6/vs? Or will
people be confused that setting a value in one directory changes the
value in the other and affects both IP versions?
