Please redesign this structure.

   +struct addrselect_attrs {
   +    struct inet6_ifaddr *ifp;
   +    int     match;
   +    int     deprecated;
   +    int     home;
   +    int     temporary;
   +    int     device;
   +    int     scope;
   +    int     label;
   +    int     matchlen;

This is much larger than it needs to be.  Please replace these "int"
binary states with single "u32 flags;" and appropriate bit

This structure sits on the stack, so it is important to be
as small as we can easily make it.

Otherwise I have no problems with the patch, Alexey?
