I would suggest moving to head.  I spent an inordinate amount of time
trying to debug issues I was having with 15.05.1, and then found out
that upgrading to head made the network more robust.

I have a similar situation, although on a fiber connection that requires
PPPoE for IPv4.  I solved it like this:

config interface 'homenet4'
        option ifname 'eth0.6'
        option proto 'pppoe'
        option username 'username'
        option password 'password'

config interface 'homenet4ext'
        option ifname 'pppoe-homenet4'
        option proto 'hnet'
        option mode 'external'
        option _orig_ifname 'pppoe-homenet4'

Basically, you "piggyback" on the interface created by PPPoE to use it
for hnet.

Again, I suggest moving to head.  You'll find more mature code.
