Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/function.socket-create#Parameters
---

The protocol section needs to be updated to account for the IPv6 protocol numbers.  
For example, calling getprotobyname('icmp') returns 1; or users would enter '1' 
for ICMP.  For IPv6, this would be '58'. To open a raw socket for a ICMPv6, the 
command would be: socket_create(AF_INET6, SOCK_RAW, '58');


Test script:
---------------
<?php

$package = "\x08\x00\x7d\x4b\x00\x00\x00\x00Howdy";

// Write fails in this test
$socket = socket_create(AF_INET6, SOCK_RAW, 1);
socket_write($socket, $package, strlen($package));

// Write successful in this test
$socket = socket_create(AF_INET6, SOCK_RAW, 58);
socket_write($socket, $package, strlen($package)); 

Expected result:
----------------
See above

Actual result:
--------------
See above

Discard;  Perhaps the doc should just be updated to include some IPv6 protocols 
(e.g. ipv6-icmp)

I'd also like to add that the full IPv6 packet is not passed to socket_read() in 
this particular test.

socket_read() sees:
800046e200000000486f776479
810045e200000000486f776479

tcpdump sees:

I don't think there's any great need to put specific IPv6 protocol
information into the manual page, but someone familiar with ICMP
should have a look at the other potential bug.
