[Dibbler] Dibbler and lifetimes under Linux

When using Dibbler with Linux, the lifetimes shown for addresses
obtained via DHCPv6 are always given as "forever" (for example when
using ip or ifconfig). Of course Dibbler is managing those addresses,
and they become deprecated/invalid at the correct times, but it would be
nice if Linux could be "informed" somehow, so that ip, ifconfig and
similar utilities gave the correct lifetime info.

Just a thought...

Regards, K.
