FS#3028 - Unable to setup multiple WAN interfaces using DHCPv6-PD

- Device problem occurs on - amd64 build on a pcengines apu4
- OpenWRT version - 19.07.2

Quick overview, about a year ago I posted this which gives a detailed overview of what was attempted.

Setting up an alias WAN interface to get multiple /64 prefixes causes them to drop their prefixes ever hour. Setting up multiple WAN interfaces on the same physical interface causes the older one to drop its prefix after an hour while the other works fine.

Steps to reproduce:
Create an alias interface and have it ask for a second prefix from an upstream router

Using a macvlan for the second WAN interface so that each WAN has its own dedicated Linux interface with its own mac address seems to make everything work. I'm not sure if this is a bug or intended. Maybe running 2 DHCPv6-PD clients on one interface isn't supported.
