[radvd-devel-l] Linux infinite loop if interface goes down

I have an issue with radvd on Linux where radvd goes to infinite loop when a 
network cable is disconnected and reconnected, or the interface is brought 
down and up again.

The machine running radvd has four interfaces for radvd announcements and I 
have had this issue for many years, I don't even remember when I started using 
radvd.  I am currently running radvd 1.1 in Ubuntu Jaunty.

The infinite loop happens in set_timer function — the while loop never 
finishes, and this is reproducible every single time.  I have attached a log 
with debug level 5 with comments when eth1 was disconnected and reconnected.
