Well, I'm implementing RDNSS support for the kernel now (I've already
posted patches on linux-kernel and netdev for review), and we're going
to ship radvd and a patched kernel for the OLPC project (laptop.org).
Our software is based on RedHat FC7, and I don't know whether it will
help to have the patches committed first upstream, but it certainly
couldn't hurt. =)

[Then again, we're not likely to publish more than one RDNS server via
radvd in our initial deployment anyway, so we can afford to use the
current version of radvd for the present at least.  BTW -- where did
the 'priority' and 'open' parameters in radvd's implementation of the
RDNSS option come from?  They don't seem to be in the current IETF
