[ipv6hackers] flood_router6 oddity

I've been playing about with Marc Heuse's stuff today.

When I use flood_router6, a Windows VM fills up with SLAAC addresses
(about 3400 at last count - it didn't seem to go much over that, but it
may have slowed too far to process more). That's temp, random and LL
addresses together. A Linux box on the same link ignored the advertised
prefixes altogether. Why? When I used fake_router6 to fake a single
prefix, the Linux box picked it up fine.

Regards, K.
