A SuSE list suggestion was to put the line
install ipv6 /bin/true
In SuSE modprobe.conf.local is included at the end of modprobe.conf
and works around the config-lost-in-an-update problem.
I'm keen to find the cleanest way to disable IPv6.
Having requests appearing on IPv6 interfaces causes them either
to fail unexpectedly (a zone transfer from a DNS slave)
or succeed unwantedly.
