    OK. Is there any reason why IPv4 should be different from IPv6 in
    this respect though?

    If the split device dst's are to be kept, we'll need a way to clean
    them up. There are two choices:

    1) Put the dst's on IPv6's own GC so that we can search by rt6i_idev.
    2) Change the generic GC so that dst->ops->ifdown is always called even
    if dst->dev does not match with the device going down. We also need to
    change the individual ifdown functions to check for ->dev. The IPv6
    ifdown function can then check for ->rt6i_idev as well.

    What's your preference?

    Cheers,
