Hi Eric:

I debug this problem, and found that the __fib6_clean_all() would not hold the cpu more than 1 second event though there
is a lot of ipv6 address to deal with, but the notifier_chian would call the ipv6 notifier several times and hold the cpu
for a long time, so add cond_resched() in the addrconf_ifdown could solve the problem correctly, I think your first solution
is the good way to fix this bug.
