I'm wondering why netdev_state_change()? You are probably
only after the netlink notification that is being invoked,
i.e. rtmsg_ifinfo(RTM_NEWLINK, ...), and don't strictly want
to call the device notifier chain.

Perhaps it might be better to define a new RTM_SETTOKEN, and
just call inet6_ifinfo_notify(RTM_SETTOKEN, idev) as this is
only idev specific anyway?
