Here again, the intension was to select IPv6 from MPTCP but I understand 
the issue: if we enable MPTCP, we will select IPV6 as well by default. 
Maybe not what we want on some embedded devices with very limited memory 
where IPV6 is already off. We should instead enable MPTCP_IPV6 only if 
IPV6=y. LGTM then!
