This may be the first of several similar commits to do this throughout IPv6,
but I think optimizations like this really belong in the network drivers; or
at least at that level. OTOH I'm not sure doing this is worthwhile at all.
I'd be interested in real experiences to back this up. FWIW I noticed that
some Linux network drivers do this.
