Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2] IPv6: keep permanent addresses on admin down

From: Stephen Hemminger <>
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2010 21:48:05 -0800

> Permanent IPV6 addresses should not be removed when the link is
> set to admin down, only when device is removed. 
> When link is lost permanent addresses should be marked as tentative
> so that when link comes back they are subject to duplicate address
> detection (if DAD was enabled for that address).
> Other routing systems keep manually configured IPv6 addresses
> when link is set down.
