Least favourable to me. I guess this also woud need iproute change
and seems most difficult to do.
Why using this command 'ip -6 route flush proto static' isn't possible?
Ok I tried this and it works fine ( i.e, leaves out removing Link Local route), but I think this is a workaround to a problem that occurs if anyone actually deletes a Link local route

I think that we know what kind of route is added for these TAHI tests,
it's better to remove only routes added manually (or by a routing daemon if
it's the case).
Removing kernel routes may hide bugs: imagine the kernel adds a wrong
TAHI will not detect it.
