As I suggested in bug 1634176, I think that we can extend the 'ip='
parameter to work as it has a 'autoconf' parameter in it, which
indicates the type of "auto" configuration to do:

klibc documents the previous ip= syntax at README.ipconfig [1].

My suggestion is to extend the 'autoconf' parameter. Previously the
supported documented values were 'rarp', 'bootp', 'both', 'dhcp', 'all',
'off', 'static', 'none'. I suggest we add 'dhcp6' to the the list.

We could also support 'dhcp4,dhcp6' or 'dhcp+dhcp6' indicating both
should be tried or possibly dhcp6 if and only if dhcp4 failed.  I think
though, for the immediate use case that just adding 'dhcp6' to the
autoconf types would suffice.
