As you explained earlier, after your patch, all entries in the fib6
tree will have rt->dst.dev be the same as rt->rt6i_idev->dev except
those ones created by p6_rt_cache_alloc() and ip6_rt_pcpu_alloc().
Then the above newly added check is mainly to catch those cached dst
entries (created by ip6_rt_cached_alloc()). right?
And it is required because __ipv6_ifa_notify() -> ip6_del_rt() won't
take care of those cached dst entries.

Then I think I should wait for your patches to get merged before
submitting my patch?

Thanks.
Wei
