Subject: Re: [PATCH] ipv6 addrconf: Ignore requests to set NODAD flag when

I need let MIP team check this but anyway....

If the NODAD flag change is confusing, just clear

And well, it does not take effect so far, but 
DAD after link failure logic is planned in long term.
So current code is okay to me.
