Hello Hideaki,

thanks for your (positive) feedback.
Indeed ARPHRD_SIT is the only hardware type that's explicitely #if 'ed 
in the addrconf.c code. Any other ARPHRD_* is not conditional to any 
CONFIGs. E.g. there is no #ifdef CONFIG_IPV6_TUNNEL arround the other 
ARPHRD_TUNNEL6 stuff in addrconf.c.

So the current patch meets the exact functional extension to the other 
code, where only ARPHRD_SIT is in #if 's.
Of course it is no problem to remove the #if defined(CONFIG_IPV6_SIT)  
... but this would be the only place in the code then.

Are you sure, that you really want have a divergent codestyle only here 
in ipv6_hwtype()?

If so i can post it of course.

Best Regards,
Oliver
