Subject: Re: [PATCH] ipv6 addrconf: Fix memory leak when deleting addresses

In article <20080604234934.GI20815@...tel.suug.ch> (at Thu, 5 Jun 2008 01:49:34 +0200), Thomas Graf <tgraf@...g.ch> says:

If prefix is ::/64 and ...

The only case ip6_del_rt() does not call dst_release() is when rt is
ip6_null_entry.  In that case we should skip whole the logic in the
caller, anyway.

Note: it might be better to release refcnt when ip6_del_rt() returns.
