Re: Multiple IPv6 RAs and specific routes broken?

According to the IPv6 guys, the reason the kernel defaults to max_plen=0
is because otherwise it is too trivial to grab packets surreptitiously
by advertising a subnet.  So you should configure this to 64 or more -
but only on interfaces with trusted routers.
