I believe you should cry at debian-ipv6 list.
And, you can find usagi kernel patch in split directory, and
you can even find (unsupported) daily kernel snapshot (diff).

Even you can't believe, I actually use IPv6 in my daily life.
I use Debian kernel at first, but in most cases,
I upgrade it to latest usagi tree ASAP.
In this means, I don't usually use Debian IPv6 kernel. (sorry.)

FYI, I hope nf_conntrack, which supports both ipv4 and ipv6, will be
integrated in 2.6.12 time frame.
Note: nf_conntrack framework is designed and written by Kozakai-san.
