I have a box with a Realtek 8139 and 'rtsol rtk0' fails to configure IPv6.
If I fire up a tcpdump it works.  If I pass '-p' to tcpdump it does not work.
This is on NetBSD/i386 -current from November 5.

So apparently the rtk driver is not correctly receiving the IPv6 rtadvd 
packet unless it is in promiscuous mode.

Has anyone else seen this, or used a Realtek with rtadvd/rtsold recently?

I've only just tried this, so I have no idea if it worked before.
