Description of problem:
Taroon A4 is lacking the processing to change the Neighbor Cache
entry's state from REACHABLE to STALE, when sending a packet,
if the Neighbor Cache exceed 45sec in status REACHABLE,
RFC2461 provide that following, but Taroon A4 kernel does not have
the processing to change from REACHABLE to STALE.
When ReachableTime milliseconds have passed since receipt of the last
reachability confirmation for a neighbor, the Neighbor Cache entry's
state changes from REACHABLE to STALE.
Please work with the USAGI project and the public mailing lists
to get this bug discussed and fixed, as basically that is all
I can do with IPV6 bug reports.
*** Bug 100768 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I think it is not appropriate to merge in a fix for something which is
purely a standards compliance issue, so late in the RHEL3 release cycle.
If a customer has a real problem they were hitting due to this bug,
that would be a different issue. This bug is purely being reported
because of a failure during the TAHI ipv6 compliance tests, and I do not
consider that a strong enough basis for inclusion this late in the product
We really need to draw the line somewhere.
Closing as WONTFIX in light of last comment.
