[ Upstream commit 751eb6b6042a596b0080967c1a529a9fe98dac1d ]

In general, when DAD detected IPv6 duplicate address, ifp->state
will be set to INET6_IFADDR_STATE_ERRDAD and DAD is stopped by a
delayed work, the call tree should be like this:

  -> addrconf_dad_failure        <- missing ifp put
     -> addrconf_mod_dad_work
       -> schedule addrconf_dad_work()
         -> addrconf_dad_stop()  <- missing ifp hold before call it

addrconf_dad_failure() called with ifp refcont holding but not put.
addrconf_dad_work() call addrconf_dad_stop() without extra holding
refcount. This will not cause any issue normally.

But the race between addrconf_dad_failure() and addrconf_dad_work()
may cause ifp refcount leak and netdevice can not be unregister,
dmesg show the following messages:

IPv6: eth0: IPv6 duplicate address fe80::XX:XXXX:XXXX:XX detected!
unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0 to become free. Usage count = 1
