I run an gigabit ipv6 network at home and have
started to use the advlinkmtu option to get a solaris
box to behave.
I did run into this issue:
Oct 26 12:41:45 ford radvd: AdvLinkMTU for intern (9000) must be zero or between 1280 and 1500
Oct 26 12:41:45 ford radvd: error parsing or activating the config file: /etc/radvd.conf
root at ford:~/radvd# ifconfig intern
intern Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:04:23:B7:91:AC
inet addr:192.168.1.2 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: 2001:980:ffe:3:204:23ff:feb7:91ac/64 Scope:Global
inet6 addr: fe80::204:23ff:feb7:91ac/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:9000 Metric:1
the check in linux-device.c is a bit braindead imho
with current jumboframe gigabit environments.
Any chance it could be enhanced somewhat ?
