radv on Ubuntu broken in distro packages

It appears that Ubuntu mesa 17.2.2 packages that ship radv, have patches to enable MIR support. These patches actually just break radv instead. I'd seen some people complain that simple apps don't work on radv, and saying radv wasn't ready for use and how could anyone thing of using it and just wondered what they had been smoking as Fedora was working fine. Hopefully Canonical can sort that out ASAP.

  2. Do they know? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mesa has only one bug mentioning radv, and it's not about radv.
