Neil Horman - Jan. 4, 2012, 4:47 p.m.
Recently Dave noticed that a test we did in ipv6_add_addr to see if we next hop
route for the interface we're adding an addres to was wrong (see commit
7ffbcecbeed91e5874e9a1cfc4c0cbb07dac3069).  for one, it never triggers, and two,
it was completely wrong to begin with.  This test was meant to cover this
section of RFC 4429:

3.3 Modifications to RFC 2462 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration

   * (modifies section 5.5) A host MAY choose to configure a new address
        as an Optimistic Address.  A host that does not know the SLLAO
        of its router SHOULD NOT configure a new address as Optimistic.
        A router SHOULD NOT configure an Optimistic Address.

This patch should bring us into proper compliance with the above clause.  Since
we only add a SLAAC address after we've received a RA which may or may not
contain a source link layer address option, we can pass a pointer to that option
to addrconf_prefix_rcv (which may be null if the option is not present), and
only set the optimistic flag if the option was found in the RA.

You're not going to dereference or inspect 'sllao' otherwise you'd
give it a more appropriate type.  You just care if it was present or
not.

So why not just make 'sllao' a "bool" and the argument passed as the
test "X != NULL"?

Honestly I was just avoiding doing the extra comparison.  I'm happy to pass it
as a test like that though if you think its cleaner.  I'll repost shortly.
