The sup720 hardware has no counters for hw-forwarded IPv6 traffic.

You can see some numbers with "show interface accounting", but that's
actually lying to you - the "IPv6" packets are "control plane or
cpu-forwarded", and IPv6 packets forwarded by hardware add up to the
"IP" counters.

(I've opened a TAC case on this, and all I got was "update documentation")

Supposedly the Sup2T can do better.
