Basically the same behavior as for ipv4.

I've been using this patch for some time on xen 4.1 and I've just
forward ported it to xen master (it applied cleanly and didn't see any
changes that would matter).

Thanks, this looks plausible, at least as far as I am able to tell. Is
there anyone around who could review this from the ipv6/iptables PoV?

WRT the release, we are now frozen for 4.3 and I'd be concerned about
introducing a subtle (or not so subtle) networking regression. George
what do you think?

Yeah, I think given that no one has been clamoring for it, it would be better to wait until 4.4.
