dummy0 and route a /64 from eth0 to dummy0.
On some other vserver hosts where I can't setup routing for a new
address block, I allocate /112s listening on eth0. I still do SNAT for
IPv4 on dummy0. Quite handy, it means the vservers don't use up IPv4
addresses from the LAN, I still get outbound IPv4 transit, but I can get
to the vserver via IPv6.
Not much management overhead, and autoconfig isn't required for IPv6 to
