It fails in ipv6/addrconf.c:addrconf_cleanup() in the "clean dev list"
loop. I didn't get around to debug it yet (found so many other showstopper
bugs in ipv6 that have priority). But it's interesting information that
it happens in stock 2.1.63 too, I would have guessed that it was caused
by Alexey's changes in the VGER tree. I'll look into it.
