Does this rate-limit all ICMPv6 packets or just ICMPv6 error messages (as
specified in ICMPv6 specifications).
If all, I believe the default of rate-limiting everything is unacceptable.
Note that in the patch does not seem to add the rate-limit sysctl to any
functions -- was that to happen in some other patch?
