Thanks for the patch.  I could integrate something like this in CVS.

However, I'm at a bit of loss with what to do with radvd.  On one 
hand, Reuben's "serialized radvd" tree is a stability improvement, but 
it has not been conformance tested and I'd be loath to release a 
significantly revised version without it.  The current versions are 
known to produce conforming external behaviour but there are some 
cornercases when stability is an issue.  I'm not sure if I want to 
release new versions of existing radvd unless there are enough or 
urgent issues to fix. If someone was able to run ran comformance test 
suites on Reuben's tree, it might be a good basis to release radvd-2.0 
and follow-up work.
