[radvd-devel-l] Linux and specific routes

I have finally obtained my answer. I ended up reading RFC 4191,
glancing at RFC 2461, and looking at Linux's source code, but found
what I was looking for. It turns out that "route information option"
is more precise than "specific routes", so I googled for it and found
that Linux supports it just fine; all you have to do is set
accept_ra_rt_info_max_plen to the maximum prefix length you want to
accept. <http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-ipv6@lists.debian.org/msg03753.html>
is very helpful.

Cheers and thanks,
