Are you sure you've understood the function of radvd correctly? You don't
need it on nodes where you want to autoconfigure addresses.
If/as you've enabled forwarding on your Linux box, router advertisements
from Cisco will automatically be ignored. This is a feature.
If you set like:
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.forwarding = 0
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.autoconf = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.accept_ra = 1
You should be able to autoconfigure that interface .. but that makes
little sense for a router.
