Default Bug#517833: sysctl net.ipv?.conf.all.* interface broken

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.24-6~etchnhalf.8
Severity: important
Forwarded: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=123599691025508&w=2

[ObFront: I wanted to make this critical and tagged security, but
until I find more information, I'll leave it as is]



seamus# head ipv6/conf/{all,eth0}/accept_ra
==> ipv6/conf/all/accept_ra <==
1

==> ipv6/conf/eth0/accept_ra <==
1
seamus# echo 0 >| ipv6/conf/all/accept_ra
seamus# head ipv6/conf/{all,eth0}/accept_ra
==> ipv6/conf/all/accept_ra <==
0

==> ipv6/conf/eth0/accept_ra <==
1



ipv6/conf/echo/accept_ra should be 0 as well, but it isn't. This
applies to all ipv[46]/conf/all/* I've tried, between 2.6.24 and
2.6.28. I have not been able to try an earlier kernel.
