After speaking with Jamie, it seems the upstream commit
fe7ca2e1e847b65c12d245cbf402af89da96888a 'IPv6: add "disable" module
parameter support to ipv6.ko' is preferable to what was originally
applied.  The following patches will revert the original "ipv6: Fix
incorrect disable_ipv6 behavior" patch and cherry-pick the 'IPv6: add
"disable" module parameter support to ipv6.ko' upstream patch.

The following changes since commit 261ff3e2a752d546a3cb38e632770315f2c7aedd:
