The current state of 802.15.4 in the linux kernel has support for basic functionality only, send / receive (no scan or associate) and only SoftMAC drivers are available at this stage.
Moving away from low level implementation (drivers) and more toward the higher level interaction (but not quite application layer).
Will be setting up the IPv6 gateway using Radvd for addressing clients (assuming the nodes / gateway are already setup on the same channel / pan id as association is not functional yet).
Another possible solution for automatic addressing would be to use DHCPv6 (IPv6 version of DHCP) but this would require a dhcp server on the gateway and knowledge of address blocks / range.
