Bug description:
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/klibc/+bug/1621507 talks of
  how ipv6 netboot with iscsi root disk doesn't work, blocking ipv6-only

  After I hand-walked busybox through getting an IPv6 address,
  everything worked just fine until cloud-init couldn't fetch the
  instance data, because it insisted on bringing up the interface in
  IPv4, and there is no IPv4 DHCP on that vlan.

  Please work with initramfs and friends on getting ipv6 netboot to
  actually configure the interface.  This may be as simple as teaching
  it about "inet6 dhcp" interfaces, and bolting the pieces together.
  Note that "use radvd" is not really an option for our use case.
