 The most important change this evening however was to [[http://​git.etherboot.org/​people/​pcmattman/​gpxe.git/​commit/​c7883b820acfd07f5dd893015f6179e38a93fcc8|fix the IPv6 routing]] to work on both the local network as well as the Internet. This made it possible to boot a kernel from my IPv6 test server, which worked extremely well. The most important change this evening however was to [[http://​git.etherboot.org/​people/​pcmattman/​gpxe.git/​commit/​c7883b820acfd07f5dd893015f6179e38a93fcc8|fix the IPv6 routing]] to work on both the local network as well as the Internet.

 +Only rebased some commits into git master today.

 +
 +While I was at it, I fixed routing to work properly when a netdev is specified, which should help on multi-homed systems connected to two+ unique networked segments (ie, one prefix per NIC).
 +
 +I also fixed the formatting for the router advertisement handle function, which had a mix of hard tabs and spaces, each at different tab stops.
