Subject: Re: nonlocal_bind & IPv6

Ok, more detail example. 

Let on each node be an apache (just for an example), and you configure VirtualHost for 
specific IP. So when node A fails, keepalived move IP to the node B and everything is 
still running. No need for restart of apache or anything else. There is a probably a 
better solution, but I can't find anything more simple than the posted patch:)
