Well, I think if there is no sockaddr_in6 there is no IPv6 too.
So, CONFIG_IPV6 seems to be a better name than CONFIG_IPV6_MULTICAST.
(the point being: sockaddr_in6 is related to IPv6, not to IPv6
Or maybe the best thing would be to have HAVE_SOCKADDR_IN6,
instead of a CONFIG_* thing.

Based on this, I think your third patch should just check for the
presence of sockaddr_in6, instead of checking for IN6_IS_ADDR_MULTICAST...
