Bug Description


When the OpenVPN server pushes routes that overlaps with the openvpn server IP, it should add a route to the OpenVPN server.
This seems to get done, but it fails:

NetworkManager[1031]: <debug> [1521794922.6687] platform: signal: route 6 added: 2a00:x:x::3/128 via fe80::230:48ff:fedc:5067 dev 2 metric 100 mss 0 rt-src rt-ra src ::/128 pref-src 2a02:x:x:x:x:x:x:5fc6
NetworkManager[1031]: <debug> [1521794922.6687] device[0x55566c34c4e0] (enxa44cc890f4c8): queued IP6 config change
NetworkManager[1031]: <warn> [1521794922.6688] platform: route: get IPv6 route for: 2a00:x:x::3 failed with unspecified

2a00:x:x::3 => VPN Server IPv6

Now this seems to be fixed in commit:

Can we get this cherry-picked in Bionic?

Tested on my laptop using hostname based endpoint from IPv6 enable location (was failing previously); packages from PPA resolved my problem.
