[radvd-devel-l] Linux and specific routes

Radvd has been working great for me under two installs, but I am
having trouble with specific route autoconfiguration (though I think
the problem is in the kernel). I am using the Linux kernel
and have prefixes and default routes configuring fine, but specific
routes are not working at all.

Here is my desired working config:
interface br0	{
AdvSendAdvert on;
AdvDefaultLifetime 0;
AdvHomeAgentFlag off;
prefix fd11:2358:1321::/64 {
	AdvOnLink on;
	AdvAutonomous on;
route fd11:2358:1321::/48 {
		AdvRoutePreference high;
		AdvRouteLifetime infinity;
RDNSS fd11:2358:1321::1
	AdvRDNSSPreference 8;
        AdvRDNSSOpen off;

I've tried variants of routes outside the prefix, more specific inside
the prefix, default router enabled, and more, but can't get it to auto
configure except for the prefix. I can verify that the route is
showing up with rdisc6 each time. Does the Linux kernel support
specific route configuration, or am I doing something wrong in the
config? Do you know of a kernel patch for specific route configuration
if the kernel doesn't support it?
