Bug Description

In my case eth0 has both an IPv4 and a global IPv6 address, but sysinfo doesn't report it:

root@ls1-lucid:~# ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr f2:3c:91:96:7c:70
          inet Mask:
          inet6 addr: yyyy:yyyy::yyyy:yyyy:yyyy:yyyy/64 Scope:Global
          inet6 addr: fe80::f03c:91ff:fe96:7c70/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:18831 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:21597 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:4069307 (4.0 MB) TX bytes:2384860 (2.3 MB)

Given the growing support/use of IPv6, it would be nice to get this implemented.

For some odd reason, I was able to change the status by mistake to "fix committed" but cannot revert to the previous status. I actually have no fix to offer.
Please revert my changes.
