Description David Howells 2005-07-28 13:12:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.0 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
ipv6_add_addr() calls addrconf_dst_alloc(). If that fails, then rt is set to  
an error not a pointer, and the epilogue at "out:" then tries to free what rt  
points to since it isn't NULL.
