Hi,

sure one know that using 

       ip -6 addr flush dev <device>

flushes (removes) all IPv6 addresses on a device.

Unfortunately, it also removes the autogenerated link-local address.

It reappears only if interface was cycled down and up, not so nice.


What about an feature that the automagically generated link-local address
will not be removed on "flush"?
