Subject: [PATCH] ipv6: addrconf: fix /proc/net/if_inet6

commit 9f0d3c2781baa1102108e16efbe640dd74564a7c upstream.

Commit 1d5783030a1 (ipv6/addrconf: speedup /proc/net/if_inet6 filling)
added bugs hiding some devices from if_inet6 and breaking applications.

"ip -6 addr" could still display all IPv6 addresses, while "ifconfig -a"
couldnt.

One way to reproduce the bug is by starting in a shell :

unshare -n /bin/bash
ifconfig lo up

And in original net namespace, lo device disappeared from if_inet6
