Sorry for not replying to this earlier - I saw the Oct 12 post and
thought about it but didn't actually reply before getting distracted
:-(

I think this patch is unnecessary and hence not wanted.
The getfs / getfs calls should be considered legacy calls.
Adding functionality to them is not appropriate.

IPv6 addresses should be handled only via the
   /proc/net/rpc/auth.unix.ip 
interface.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
