Updated bugzilla with x86 defconfig demonstrating similar breakage.

Both issues seem to demonstrate a problem with built-in NFS and modular IPV6 together.

Hi there,

Just attempted a build of vanilla 2.6.21-rc1 and got a failure with our usual defconfig. Notably, we build IPV6 support as modular - this seems to be the source of the problem.

If any other info is required, please ask.

Thanks for your help,
