Package: kernel-source-2.6.9
Version: 2.6.9-2
Severity: normal

I have configured a 6to4 tunnel for IPv6 access. When I do a shutdown or
reboot of the system, I get the following on the console:

Deconfiguring network interfaces...
unregister_netdevice: Waiting for tun6to4 to become free. Usage count=1
unregister_netdevice: Waiting for tun6to4 to become free. Usage count=1
unregister_netdevice: ....

and so on, with the last line repeated at 10 second intervals. I cannot
break out of this loop except by turning off the power.

I have observed this with my custom-compiled kernel, and also with the
official kernel, and on two different machines. It happens even if I
haven't actually transferred any data over the tunnel.

The first system is an Athlon XP 2400+ desktop. The other one is an Acer
TravelMate 223X laptop with a Mobile Celeron at 1.13 Ghz.

The 6to4 tunnel device looks as follows (IP addresses removed):

~$ /sbin/ifconfig tun6to4
tun6to4   Link encap:IPv6-in-IPv4
          inet6 addr: 2002:xxxx:yyyy::1/16 Scope:Global
	  inet6 addr: ::83.227.xxx.yyy/128 Scope:Compat
          UP RUNNING NOARP  MTU:1480  Metric:1
          (packet stats removed, all zeros)

~$ ip tunnel show
tun6to4: ipv6/ip  remote any  local 83.227.xxx.yyy  ttl 255
