Here's a 7zip file containing the changed files for my patch, using the
1.7.4 file on the website as the base. I tested it, and I can now
retrieve the IPv6 DNS servers from Windows, which means I can of course
now send DNS over IPv6 as a result.
Maybe someone could have a look at it?
Most of the changes are in ares_init.c, but there are a few others here
and there. I'm also wondering whether I need to filter out some of the
link local multicast/broadcast IPv6 addresses that seem to be returned
in the DNS server list for Windows.
Hopefully the mailing list will approve attachments. Here goes :)
