net: ipv6: Don't purge default router if accept_ra=2
Lorenzo Colitti [Sun, 3 Mar 2013 20:46:46 +0000 (20:46 +0000)]
Setting net.ipv6.conf.<interface>.accept_ra=2 causes the kernel
to accept RAs even when forwarding is enabled. However, enabling
forwarding purges all default routes on the system, breaking
connectivity until the next RA is received. Fix this by not
purging default routes on interfaces that have accept_ra=2.
