Default Bug#651255: ipv6: Fails to report all IPv6 addresses assigned to interface

Source: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-39
Severity: important
Tags: security ipv6

We need to apply this bug fix:

commit bcd323262a94b14b84341982b90443a76a477861

ipv6: Allow inet6_dump_addr() to handle more than 64 addresses

Apparently, inet6_dump_addr() is not able to handle more than
64 ipv6 addresses per device. We must break from inner loops
in case skb is full, or else cursor is put at the end of list.

Tagging this as 'security' because the system may accept connection
attempts to an address which doesn't appear to be assigned to it.
