[ipv6hackers] Configuring my laptop to use RFC 7217

On my laptop, I run Gentoo linux, Kernel 4.9.16
I currently generate random IPv6 addresses (RFC 4941) which means in my
/etc/syctl.conf, i have:
# Allow IPV6 Random addresses
This works just fine - but I would like to have deterministic IPv6
addresses per network that I visit (RFC 7217)
My "/etc/dhcpcd.conf" file contains "slaac private"
Also - running "sysctl -a" gives me what appears to suggest RFC 7217 is
enabled in my kernel,
sysctl: reading key "net.ipv6.conf.all.stable_secret"
sysctl: reading key "net.ipv6.conf.default.stable_secret"
sysctl: reading key "net.ipv6.conf.eth0.stable_secret"
I have been searching around, read RFC 7217 - etc and see some info on
the subject but not enough..
I don't have a program called "addrgenmode" (neither does "equery b
addrgenmode" give anything). From reading - this appears to initialise
the "stable secret".
Anyone care to provide idiot instructions on how to run "Opaque
Interface" addresses on my Linux gentoo laptop?
