ipv6: fix NULL reference in proxy neighbor discovery
The addition of TLLAO option created a kernel OOPS regression for the case where neighbor advertisement is being sent via proxy path. When using proxy, ipv6_get_ifaddr() returns NULL causing the NULL dereference. Change causing the bug was: commit f7734fdf61ec6bb848e0bafc1fb8bad2c124bb50 Author: Octavian Purdila <opurdila@ixiacom.com> Date: Fri Oct 2 11:39:15 2009 +0000 make TLLAO option for NA packets configurable Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Acked-by: YOSHIFUJI Hideaki <yoshfuji@linux-ipv6.org> Signed-off-by: David S.
