Subject: Re: 2.6.23: TG3+VLAN: IPv6 router advertisments missed by kernel

The issue shows up reliably when starting the system though some 
(re)configuration operations on the network interface makes the issue 
disapear.
One way to get the kernel to see the advertisments is to restart the interface 
with its vlans or (as below) keeping the interface in promiscuous mode.

Regards,
Bruno
