[IPV6]: Defer IPv6 device initialization until a valid qdisc is specified
Mitsuru Chinen [Wed, 10 Oct 2007 09:53:43 +0000 (02:53 -0700)]
To judge the timing for DAD, netif_carrier_ok() is used. However,
there is a possibility that dev->qdisc stays noop_qdisc even if
netif_carrier_ok() returns true. In that case, DAD NS is not sent out.
We need to defer the IPv6 device initialization until a valid qdisc
is specified.
