This can be understood as "available _in the libc_", and not "available in
the libc and the kernel". I quickly checked in the glibc sources, and I did
not see any check for kernel support of IPv6 sockets.

I was trying to explain why getaddrinfo can reasonably return addresses in a
family not supported by the kernel. udp_ipv6_set_local must be written
