isatapd creates and maintains an ISATAP client tunnel (RFC 5214) in Linux.
It uses the in-kernel ISATAP support first introduced in linux-2.6.25.
It does NOT operate the tunnel or handle any IPv6 traffic, it only sets
up the tunnel parameters, the Potential Router List, sends periodic
router solicitations and tries to detect link changes.
