NetBSD rangeley 7.99.21 NetBSD 7.99.21 (RANGELEY) #33: Thu Sep 10 09:15:06 JST 2015  ozaki-r@rangeley:(hidden) amd64
Changing net.inet6.icmp6.redirtimeout doesn't affect actual timeout (expiration time)
of routes created by icmp6 redirect. It's because sysctl updates icmp6_redirtimeout
variable, but doesn't update icmp6_redirect_timeout_q that is the timer routine of
the timeout feature.

Reported by s-yamaguchi@IIJ
See upcoming ATF tests for icmp6 redirect.
We need to update icmp6_redirect_timeout_q when updating icmp6_redirtimeout
as well as sysctl_net_inet_icmp_redirtimeout does for IPv4 icmp redirect.
