Thanks for this, I really appreciate it.
I am going to push the code in ASAP. I'm concerned that I haven't been 
able to test this code against a real MLDv2 querier. (Lame I know!)

Folk with IPv6 test setups could really help out here -- if you have an 
IPv6 multicast setup to exercise this code, that would be great. I've 
tested that the reports appear to be correct.
If there's a problem it is probably going to come from scope IDs being 
embedded on-wire, or possibly getting a test wrong in the input path.

We're talking hours/days of latency here for me to get a test tool up 
and running. I don't like pushing code in too early, but I'm already 
being pressured to look at other things, so it seems best to get it in 
and clean up any issues as soon as possible.

Normally I wouldn't play fast and loose like this, but it is IPv6 so I 
am giving myself a bit more leeway this time around :-)
