Well, turns out I was right, and I now have the uml talking to my lan
and world over ipv4, and ipv6, and my lan and the world talking to the
uml over ipv6. So basically what I did is to install the bridge-utils
package under debian, read the docs, and configure things in
/etc/network/interfaces, all on the host of course. The config on the
uml wasn't touched at all. For a generic config method, the brctl(8)
manual page describes how to set things up. Hth someone else, and
thanks to Jason for his suggestions.
