It is already in davem's stable queue and should be integrated in the next stable
kernels. If openwrt picks them up, it should show up there, too.

May I ask if those fixes for multi-prefix routing made it upstream? Btw. I
am more then willing to have a look at ipv6 kernel problems and maybe
fix them. ;)

Thanks a lot,
