W.r.t. the latter, ip6t_ROUTE.c doesn't build properly as a module, because it
invokes the inline function ndisc_get_neigh(), which in turn depends on the
symbol (un-exported) symbol nd_tbl:

static inline struct neighbour * ndisc_get_neigh(struct net_device *dev, struct in6_addr *addr)

        if (dev)
                return __neigh_lookup(&nd_tbl, addr, dev, 1);

        return NULL;

Presumably ip6t_ROUTE.c requires an out-of-line version of ndisc_get_neigh()
to be exported.
