Except it doesn't work everywhere, for example it's not available in the 
most recent NX-OS 4.2 (Cisco Nexus 7000). You can either do "ipv6 nd 
suppress-ra" on that platform (which had (has?) the nasty problem of one 
RA being sent during software upgrade, hello SLAAC on >500 cluster 
hosts), or use a prefixlen != /64.
