Re: howto keep always ipv4ll address

it was not as easy as just killing avahi-autoipd service when up (or any dhcp) event took place in dispatcher. This approach led to new ipv4ll address because, when avahi-autoipd re-started some other party reported "conflict" with that old address and avahi-autoipd selected new one. This was not what I wanted.

So, instead of killing avahi-autoipd, I just executed /etc/avahi/avahi-autoipd.action script with BIND mode provided that avahi-autoipd was found from ps list bound to valid address. Other-vice I restarted avahi-autoipd like the original plan was.

Also, "eth0:avahi" sounds more like an interface-alias. That is not a
separate (real) interface, just one address that is show by ifconfig
tool as a separate interface (but it isn't). See `ip addr show`.

Interface alias is goodenough for me as along as it responds to both addresses as it does by my experience.
