Once in a while I read the pacman paper(which I can very much 
recommend). The heuristics used there can imho easily be adjusted to 
IPv6, should just be a matter of widening the ip data structures. Also, 
the pacman source is published under a free licence so you could also 
adjust it to make a olsrd plugin from it, which runs on several OSs.
  The thing is just that using this DAD with ipv6 does not give you any 
advantage over DAD with ipv4, but one big disadvantage, which is the 
increased protocol overhead due to 4times larger addresses. So is there 
any particular reason why you want to use only ipv6?

For IPv6 there is also this manet autoconf scheme, though I think the 
pacman idea is much better:

[these to have been implemented into qolsr]


kind regards,
