I debugged this a bit.  I created an interface name 'longtunnelname0' 
and enabled radvd on it.  /proc/net/if_inet6 looks a bit odd, but 
radvd works on that interface just fine without any modifications.
I tested this on 2.4.20 kernel though.  I don't think it matters, but 
in theory it might..

Therefore I don't think this is a real bug here; it may be a bug 
somewhere else.  More info will be needed to be able reproduce the 
problem.  I'd suggest trying to run 'radvd -m stderr -d 20' to see 
whether there are any particular debug messages, and if the problem 
persists, copy /proc/net/if_inet6 in the bug report as well.
