    I see. Did you check /proc/sys/net/ipv6/ tunables ?

    For example, I bet you need to make route/max_size a bigger value than
    default (4096)

    Following is working for me

    echo 16384 >/proc/sys/net/ipv6/route/max_size
    modprobe dummy numdummies=2000
    for a in `seq 1 1999`
    ip -6 add add 4444::444:$a/24 dev dummy$a

    ip -6 ro | wc -l
