On the kernel side, the two ioctl() parameters I know are needed are 
'SIOCGIFSTAT_ICMP6', and 'SIOCGIFSTAT_IN6'. If Randy's doing the kernel 
implemention, it makes more sense for him to add the ioctl() calls 
into the kernel as well. 

On the NET-SNMP side, there are still many tables and objects that are 
not implemented. As I listed in the previous email: 


I will go research on these and see what are needed for those to be done. 
There is a possibility that more of those ioctl() calls are needed. But
I don't know yet.
