[Dnsmasq-discuss] Problem with bleeding-edge Linux kernels.

Just a warning that some recent -git snaphots of linux 2.6.15 have a bug 
which breaks dnsmasq. The symptom is failure at startup, with the
following logged:

dnsmasq: failed to find list of interfaces: No such device

This is caused by a change in the format of /proc/inet/if_inet6 and 
therefore only affects kernels with IPv6 support enabled.

Since this also breaks tools such as ifconfig, it has been reverted in 
the latest kernel tree.
