Subject: zd1211rw and mac80211: multicast/v6 doesn't work in


On Fedora 7 (kernel 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7, based on, my 
zd1211rw_mac80211 WLAN USB stick and multicast/v6 no longer works. 
On Fedora 6 (kernel 2.6.20, no mac80211) it was OK.

I get "wlan0: duplicate address detected!" on dmesg when the kernel is 
trying to autoconfigure a global address.

I suppose this is caused by the IPv6 stack seeing my own ICMPv6 
neighbor solicitation and thinking it was originated by someone else:

08:46:21.762807 00:02:72:5b:dc:28 > 33:33:ff:5b:dc:28, ethertype IPv6 (0x86dd), length 78: (hlim 255, next-header: ICMPv6 (58), length: 24) :: > ff02::1:ff5b:dc28: [icmp6 sum ok] ICMP6, neighbor solicitation, length 24, who has 2001:708:10:90:202:72ff:fe5b:dc28

Strangely, the same error isn't printed with the link-local address 
which uses the same EUI-64.

z1211rw Wiki seems to imply that this might be an issue in generic 
mac80211 code:

It'd be nice to get this fixed.  Or has it already been?
