                 Summary: The IPv6 autoconfig should be enabled by default.
                 Project: lwIP - A Lightweight TCP/IP stack

                Category: IPv6
                Severity: 3 - Normal
              Item Group: Faulty Behaviour
                  Status: None
                 Privacy: Public
             Assigned to: None
             Open/Closed: Open
         Discussion Lock: Any
         Planned Release: None
            lwIP version: git head

Details:

1)as RFC4862 section 5.5 statement: Creation of global addresses as described
in this section SHOULD be locally configurable. However, the processing
described below MUST be enabled by default. 2) In other TCP/IP protocol stack,
such as Linux and FreeBSD, the IPv6 autoconfig is enabled by default. so I
suggest that IPv6 autoconfig should be enabled by default in lwip by setting
netif->ip6_autoconfig_enabled to 1 in netif_add, pls refer the attached patch.
