Yes,  but _startklips,  which is run by "ipsec setup start" configured the
IP addresses onto the ipsecX devices.  I know because I had to add code
in there for IPv6 ;-)

The master branch uses ifconfig while the klips-ipv6 branch uses iproute2.
I'd actually like to bring these user space changes (mostly minor) across to
mainline at some point ;-)
