SRU Justification


2.6.32 has a problem with allocating IPv6 addresses that shows up using later versions of libvirt, or if you create lots of IPv6 addresses manually.

What happens is that 'ip addr show dev' for a particular device fails to show the ipv6 addresses on them, yet they are there in the 'ifconfig' listing for that device.


A partial backport of upstream commit 234b27c3fd58fc0e15c04dd0fbf4337fac9c2a06
