I was hoping that kernel would provide the ioctl() calls and we can 
just use the current implementation in NET-SNMP. If this is not the 
case for linux, then basically we need to implemented the whole ipv6 
MIBs set for NET-SNMP. That will be a lot more work. :)

Does the 2.5 kernel also provide things in "tcp6.h" that's in FreeBSD?
If so, what header file is that?
