your trying to be too fancy in the log messages; everything after this
first '---' is dropped. Just Remove all of the '---' lines and '```' tags.

how does that work for IPv4? Is the metric passed to the dhclient and it
inserts the route with the given metric or is a dhclient script used to
replace the route after insert?

stray ' after accept_ra_defrtr

make the the '=' align column wise with the existing entries; seems like
your new line is missing a tab

this tells me you did not compile this version of the patch since the
'accept_' has been dropped. Always compile and test every patch before
sending.
