radvd: Allow use of AdvRASrcAddress
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


When using keepalived and router advertisements, it is useful to force the RA source address to something like fe80::1 which is then also configured on the VRRP interface.

This way all clients receiving the RA's will use fe80::1 as the gateway and have less downtime in case of a VRRP transition.

Backport for this PR. I am not running 1.3 so YMMV.

I just realized this also need to be added to the docs, I will make a PR for that as well.
