I managed to get Homenet working on 18.06.1. There is a conflict with some 
files so you have to do "opkg remove" on the dhcpv6 server, but after that 
it installs cleanly and seems to work. I installed it on two machines and 
they did all the homenet+hncp+babel things.

One thing I discovered is that I would like DHCPv6-PD lifetime capping, so 
I can control the source address selection of hosts. I had two different 
upstreams with PDs and one had much longer lifetime compared to the 
other. So hosts chose the one with the highest lifetime, which wasn't what 
I wanted.
