In fact, you can unload if you pass "unloading=1" when loading.
But, rmmod ipv6 does not work properly and we cannot insmod ipv6 again.
We've fixed this (and code is in our (USAGI Project
<http://www.linux-ipv6.org>'s) tree), but kernel panics if we unloaded
ipv6 module when *any* ipv6 sockets exist.
BTW, Don't you think that if we knew all, we've done it? :-)
