It would appear to me that your route or h2 configuration is wrong; you're
telling h1 that fec0:0:0:0:0:ffff::/96 is on-link, even though the address
you're trying to ping belongs to the other interface on the dual-stack
host.  This causes neighbor solicitations fail.

If you change the route so that the address you're trying to ping is
directed to be sent to fec0::1/96, the dual-stack host interface address,
this should work fine.

Never used NAT-PT on Linux though, so if this is the expected
configuration, can't help..
