Description of problem:
When I use a IPv6 gateway address starting with other than 001b, command 'ip' and 'route' generate 'invalid arguement' error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.ip -6 route add 10::a120/124 via 10::a111
Actual Results: RTNETLINK answers : invalid argument
Expected Results: a route table to subnet 10::a120/124 should be added
I know RFC3587 described prefix 001b is the unicast global address range assigned by IANA, and all other unicast address rage is 'unassigned'.
But 'unassigned' do not mean illegal. It's only administrative purpose.
Implentation should not get such restriction, I think.
I'm not quite convinced about validity of this requierement. I've reported your
issue to upstream, hopefully it will be fixed in next update.
