SubjectRe: unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0 to become free. Usage count = 1

Yes.. Agree. But one difference is that if the route is removed from
addrconf_ifdown(), dst_dev_put() won't be called to release the
devices before doing dst_release(). It is OK if dst_release() sees the
refcnt on dst already drops to 0 and directly destroys the dst. But I
think it will cause problem if at the time, the dst is still held by
some other users because then the refcnt on the device going down will
not get released.
That's why I think we should remove the dst with either dst->dev ==
going down dev or rt6->rt6i_idev->dev == going down dev from the fib6
tree always because there, we always call dst_dev_put() to release the
device.

Right. That is expected as the route is already removed from the tree.

Yes. possible. But as I explained earlier, I still think we should
also remove routes with rt6->rt6i_idev->dev == going down dev from the
tree.

Thanks.
