I think there is a misunderstanding.
I get a /56 prefix from my ISP, i.e. 256 /64 subnets.
Hosts directly attached to the router get an address in some /64
subnet (say #00).
Right. 2001:db8::

There I can add another router (my linux-firewall),
so its "external" interface gets an address in that first prefix

The "internal" interface gets an address in another /64 subnet (via
PD, some subnet other than #00)).

And these internal addresses are unknown to the first router (I think,
or is there some ipv6 magic ?).
How does your internal network get a /64 network?

radvd should only emit to the internal interface, isn't it ?

radvd will use whatever interfaces it's configured for. Is it your
radvd or the one of the dsl router?

When I was getting a /56 via 6in4 tunnel, I was able to configure
openSUSE to pass a 2nd /64 to a VLAN and updated radvd accordingly to
hand out the appropriate prefix. So, it's not a problem for a Linux
based or commercial grade router to handle. I'm currently running
pfsense and it also supports multiple local interfaces, including VLANs.
