 If IPFilter is compiled as a kernel module (ipl), IPv6 rules cannot be
 # kldload ipl
 # cat /tmp/t
 pass out all
 # ipf -6 -f /tmp/t
 1:ioctl(add/insert rule): No such process
 while IPv4 rules (ipf without -6) work perfectly.
 If IPFilter is compiled in-kernel (options IPFILTER), then ipf -6 works
 as expected.
