2: Enable DAD, and disable IPv6 operation if MAC-based duplicate
link-local address has been found.
+force_tllao - BOOLEAN
+ Enable sending the target link-layer address option even when
+ responding to a unicast neighbor solicitation.
+ Default: FALSE
+
+ Quoting from RFC 2461, section 4.4, Target link-layer address:
+
+ "The option MUST be included for multicast solicitations in order to
+ avoid infinite Neighbor Solicitation "recursion" when the peer node
+ does not have a cache entry to return a Neighbor Advertisements
+ message. When responding to unicast solicitations, the option can be
+ omitted since the sender of the solicitation has the correct link-
+ layer address; otherwise it would not have be able to send the unicast
+ solicitation in the first place. However, including the link-layer
+ address in this case adds little overhead and eliminates a potential
+ race condition where the sender deletes the cached link-layer address
+ prior to receiving a response to a previous solicitation."
