Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 022/101] net: ipv6: send unsolicited NA on admin up
Date
From: David Ahern <dsa@cumulusnetworks.com>

[ Upstream commit 4a6e3c5def13c91adf2acc613837001f09af3baa ]

ndisc_notify is the ipv6 equivalent to arp_notify. When arp_notify is
set to 1, gratuitous arp requests are sent when the device is brought up.
The same is expected when ndisc_notify is set to 1 (per ndisc_notify in
Documentation/networking/ip-sysctl.txt). The NA is not sent on NETDEV_UP
event; add it.

Fixes: 5cb04436eef6 ("ipv6: add knob to send unsolicited ND on link-layer address change")
