Hi Simon,

>From reading the code and git logs I suspect this
commit, which introduced icmpv6_error():

  9fb9cbb1082d [NETFILTER]: Add nf_conntrack subsystem.

  (introduced in: Linux v2.6.15 / 2006)

Unfortunately, I was only able to reproduce it in practice
on a Debian 5 / Linux 2.6.26 in a VM so far.

I could boot a Debian 4 + Linux 2.6.15, but wasn't able to
insert conntrack rules with ip6tables there though, even
with some iptables + kernel rebuilds/reconfigure attempts.

Also this related fix introduced in v2.6.29 should hint to the
age of this issue:

  3f9007135c1d netfilter: nf_conntrack_ipv6: don't track ICMPv6 negotiation message

Which only picked/fixed a few ICMPv6 types but not ICMPv6 MRD

tl;dr: for me this would be ok, if it were ok for others, too, that I
couldn't fully bisect to it in practice... :

Fixes: 9fb9cbb1082d ("[NETFILTER]: Add nf_conntrack subsystem.")
