Raw text about native IPv6 setup

The IPv6 stuff in the handbook is no help in setting up an actual IPv6 connection to an ISP supporting that.

Attached some text describing what I ended up doing.

It would be prudent to have people with /etc/rc.d and IPv6 clue review it, because I have neither.

Is there a reason why you're submitting a plaintext file over putting a review on Phabricator? I'll be happy to review and approve if you wanna write it up.
The relevant file is doc/documentation/content/en/books/handbook/config/_index.adoc on line 321 starting with [[config-network-setup]]

AsciiDoctor is almost the same as plaintext, there's just a tiny bit of formatting that should be self-explanatory if you reference the examples in that section of the file.

Everything needed is mentioned on https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/fdp-primer/#overview-quick-start

To be brutally honest:  If I put that on my TODO list, I'll never get around to it.
Comment 3 Daniel Ebdrup Jensen freebsd_committer 2021-02-12 15:07:11 UTC
Maybe it'll do better on mine.
Comment 4 Daniel Ebdrup Jensen freebsd_committer 2021-02-12 17:19:25 UTC
It's now up for review with review D28622.
