the test uses two nodes (running on ns-3 network simulator
with net-next kernel), which is connected via a
point-to-point data link: payload is encapsulated by PPP

so there is no need of neighbor resolution (ARP, NS/NA) on
that link (dev->flags has IFF_NOARP and IFF_POINTOPOINT bits).

   node 0  <---------------> node 1
2001:1::1/64               2001:1::2/64

let me know if you need further information.

I'm going to create a real environment to figure out a
minimum-reproducible command set that we can try.

do you have any chance to create an interface with IFF_NOARP
and IFF_POINTOPOINT (some tunnel device ?) on the latest
net-next kernel ?
