       ip-token - tokenized interface identifier support

       IPv6 tokenized interface identifier support is used for assigning well-
       known host-part addresses to nodes whilst still obtaining a global
       network prefix from Router advertisements. The primary target for
       tokenized identifiers are server platforms where addresses are usually
       manually configured, rather than using DHCPv6 or SLAAC. By using
       tokenized identifiers, hosts can still determine their network prefix
       by use of SLAAC, but more readily be automatically renumbered should
       their network prefix change [1]. Tokenized IPv6 Identifiers are
       described in the draft [1]: <draft-chown-6man-tokenised-

   ip token set - set an interface token
       set the interface token to the kernel. Once a token is set, it cannot
       be removed from the interface, only overwritten.

       TOKEN  the interface identifier token address.

       dev DEV
              the networking interface.

   ip token get - get the interface token from the kernel
       show a tokenized interface identifier of a particular networking
       device.  Arguments: coincide with the arguments of ip token set but the
       TOKEN must be left out.

   ip token list - list all interface tokens
       list all tokenized interface identifiers for the networking interfaces
       from the kernel.
