[erlang-questions] IPv6 support in inet_gethost

As far as I understand, inet_gethost uses getipnodebyname and
getipnodebyaddr functions.

It seems that both functions aren't implemented in Linux (probably
they require some unusual libraries?).

Mikael Magnusson has sent a patch (attached, patch is for R11B-2) to
Debian bugs database. It adds IPv6 addresses resolution using
gethostbyname2 and gethostbyaddr.

I hope it will be useful not only for Debian users.

Best wishes!
