Sorry for the long delay, I was busy with other stuff...

So basically a workaround you can do for the time being is to add the tunnel
with a local address:

ip tunnel add foo mode gre local 4.3.2.1 remote 1.2.3.4 ttl 64

The reason is that link local address generation fails in ipv6/addrconf as
long as dev->dev_addr is zero.

I have not yet found the change which causes this change in behaviour, but
will do so soon.

Bye,

  Hannes
