The bug 757 is about IPv6 link-local on non-ARP devices such as PPP.
In general PPP devices do not have a link-layer address and they use
IPv6 Control Protocol to obtain a 64-bit identifier (see RFC5072) and
then autoconfigure their link-local address.
In order to use IPv6 over PPP now, the quick way is to add a NdiscCache
to PPP (currently NdiscCache is added only to ARP-like devices) and then
Neighbor Discovery messages (NS, NA, RA, RS) will contains link-layer
address and like I said in real world PPP devices have not a link-layer
WDYT about this workaround before an IPv6CP implementation ?
