[PATCH ipv6 1/1] ipv6: addrconf: do addrconf_ifdown when last ipv6 address is removed

From: Mazhar Rana
Date: Thu Jun 18 2015 - 05:30:53 EST

After 'commit 876fd05ddbae03166e7037fca957b55bb3be6594
("ipv6: don't disable interface if last ipv6 address is removed")'
it is not clearing ipv6 interface configurations(routes, neighbours,
etc) when last ipv6 address of interface is removed.

This patch will call addrconf_ifdown when last ipv6 address of
interface is removed to clear ipv6 interface configurations. This will
not delete /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/<interface> directory.
