Ok, that's quite sensible. Then I'd like to add some documentation
either to Documentation/networking/netdevices.txt or a new file (say
Documentation/networking/ipv6-addrconf.txt) to describe the new
feature.  Although netdevices.txt seems to be rather incomplete, I
think the description of this netdevice feature belongs herein.

Any other thoughts, comments regarding the patch?
