Mine _appears_ to do this, if tcpdump can be trusted.  But it's a moderately
expensive Cisco enterprise AP.  Do others not?

I don't see where on the way to nd6_dad_na_input() we check for the sender
mac and would filter out our own.

Sadly the sender mac is missing from the protocol itself, unlike the ARP equivalent which makes life harder.
We would need to look at the ethernet frame.

See here:

We need a similar check in nd6_na_input().
