Looking at my patch to move host routes from loopback to device with the
address, I have this:

@@ -2789,7 +2808,8 @@ static int fib6_ifdown(struct rt6_info *rt, void *arg)
const struct arg_dev_net *adn = arg;
const struct net_device *dev = adn->dev;

- if ((rt->dst.dev == dev || !dev) &&
+ if ((rt->dst.dev == dev || !dev ||
+ (netdev_unregistering(dev) && rt->rt6i_idev->dev == dev)) &&
rt != adn->net->ipv6.ip6_null_entry &&
(rt->rt6i_nsiblings == 0 ||
(dev && netdev_unregistering(dev)) ||
