Subject[PATCH v4 2/2] net: br_netfiler_hooks: Drops IPv6 packets if IPv6 module is not loaded
Date
A kernel panic can happen if a host has disabled IPv6 on boot and have to
process guest packets (coming from a bridge) using it's ip6tables.

IPv6 packets need to be dropped if the IPv6 module is not loaded.
