IPv6 should not be optional

"Enabling IPv6 (Optional)"

The first presentation at SouthEast LinuxFest 2010 was titled "IPv6: No Longer Optional". That was 10 years ago. Please enable it by default.

I agree. I renamed the section title. Would be nice if it was enabled by default everywhere; I am still seeing cases where having dualstack turned on by default causes issues, amazingly, in 2023... One of my dumbass ISPs, Optimum (Altice), still doesn't have IPv6, which is insane.

It looks like Alpine loads ipv6 anyways, does not matter for me if it is in /etc/modules or not.

A bit of cursory research shows that ipv6 is present in /etc/modules since at least Alpine v3.9. Thus I have removed the entire "Enabling IPv6" section since nothing there is applicable anymore.
