Cisco Bug: CSCul54254 - OSPFv3 may not flush some apparently self-originated LSAs

Symptom: Invalid LSAs are not flushed by the router which has their Advertising Router ID. Specifically, Router LSAs which do not have LSID of 0 will not be flushed if the router does not re-originate them, and any LSA with a type that the router does not recognize. Lingering LSAs could lead to incorrect routing in some very obscure instances. For example, stale Router LSA fragments from two neighboring routers would need to remain in the network. There would not be a routing problem if only one router's stale Router LSA fragment was allowed to linger. Conditions: There are several possible scenarios that could lead to this symptom. One example is that a router is configured with many interfaces attached to an OSPFv3 instance such that it originates more than one Router LSA fragment. Then the router is reloaded before the configuration is saved, and after the reload it does not reoriginate some of the Router LSA fragments.
