Could you try ip -6 route list table all instead? I would be interested in the

But I actually need the flags on the routes, so perhaps you could drop some
routes when importing the full-feed in quagga?

Don't know the details how the kernel handles memory allocations at that
point. Perhaps fragmentation, I don't know.
