Hi Harm:

Can you take a look at the following, which should address this:

There are some diffs out for review for this blueprint:
but the change to support 1 V4 + multiple V6 addresses on a gateway port hasn't been added yet. I should be adding this soon.

There was a request for a Juno feature freeze exception for this blueprint, but there's been no response, so this may not get approved until K release.

Given the work on [1] has been abandoned, I'm wondering what the current status of going dual stack is. Of course, given Neutron got something like that on it's roadmap.

The initial BP [2] aimed for Havana and Icehouse, and I'm unaware of something similar to achieve a dual stack network. What are the options, if any? To my knowledge it all comes down to supporting multiple exterior interfaces (networks) on a l3-agent, which is currently limited to just 1: either IP4 or IP6.
