Could you please check your kern.log for any abnormal messages prior
to this badness?

Here's a check which might help.  Please apply it and see if it
produces anything.

BTW, there are still races left in addrconf.c.  However, they are
less likely to trigger compared to the one that's been fixed already.
The races are similar in nature to it.  For example, dad_complete
may race with dad_failure to lead to the sequence ip6_del_rt/ip6_ins_rt.
