We had some severe problems with router advertisements send by Quagga
. It assumes that sizeof(struct sockaddr_dl.sdl_data) is 12
(interface name and MAC address). An interface name longer that 6
characters truncates the MAC address in the router advertisement. The
issue is known since 2007.
I wrote a patch and we tested it for several weeks.
Create an interface with a name longer than 6 characters and verify the MAC
address in the output of show interface in Quagga.
