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[1343]: AdvLinkMTU for intern (9000) must be zero or between 1280 and 1500
Oct 26 12:41:45 ford radvd[1343]: 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:  Bcast:  Mask:
           inet6 addr: 2001:980:ffe:3:204:23ff:feb7:91ac/64 Scope:Global
           inet6 addr: fe80::204:23ff:feb7:91ac/64 Scope:Link

the check in linux-device.c is a bit braindead imho
with current jumboframe gigabit environments.
Any chance it could be enhanced somewhat ?
