Slowly catching up on my backlog, sorry for the delay. Yes.

Eric, thanks for the series. For the first patch, I think that it'd be
nice to apply this for all IPv6 tests to speed them up. Given that we
assume control of the host for running these tests, I don't think
there's any situation where we actually want duplicate address
detection here. I looked to see if we could change the addresses in
the testsuite, for example to use link-local IPv6 addresses which I
think could avoid DAD, but if we did this then we would need to update
all of the pings and wgets and so on to specify a device; as it turns
out, even quite recent versions of wget do not parse the arguments
reliably to be able to do this. So, I think this would be more hassle
than it's worth. For now, we should stick with IPv6 ULAs (fc00:) for
the testsuite and just see if we can edge towards always disabling

I intend to apply this series as-is shortly, with just the following
incremental to skip the geneve6 test when iproute can't configure it
