IPv6: do not create temporary adresses with too short preferred lifetime
Benoit Boissinot [Wed, 2 Apr 2008 07:01:35 +0000 (00:01 -0700)]
From RFC341:
A temporary address is created only if this calculated Preferred
Lifetime is greater than REGEN_ADVANCE time units.  In particular, an
implementation must not create a temporary address with a zero
Preferred Lifetime.
