Disable router anycast address for /127 prefixes
Bjørn Mork [Tue, 5 Jul 2011 23:04:13 +0000 (23:04 +0000)]
RFC 6164 requires that routers MUST disable Subnet-Router anycast
for the prefix when /127 prefixes are used.

No need for matching code in addrconf_leave_anycast() as it
will silently ignore any attempt to leave an unknown anycast
address.
