RE: [rfc2462bis] relationship between M/O flags and related protocols

I agree with the Jinmei's definition that the M bit indicates to the host
that DHCPv6 for IP address configuration is available on the link.

With that definition it is possible to build hosts that initialize
efficiently, by only trying to use DHCPv6 when the router advertisements
say that it is available.
