Actually, I can't split it into because a netdevice can only have 1 
master yet can have both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. I just noticed how 
bonding has it defined:

config BONDING
         tristate "Bonding driver support"
         depends on INET
         depends on IPV6 || IPV6=n

Let me try that style with VRF.
