Hopefully someone can take the NetBSD change (not net committed will

Hi List!

dhcpcd-6.8.2 has been released with the following changes:
  * dump leases no longer affects kernel settings
  * dhcpcd can now act as a pure BOOTP client
  * IPv6 default route is only installed once a valid address is made
  * fixed a crash when finding a route without an interface
  * fixed host routes received in the CSR option
  * stop using _BSD_SOURCE and use _GNU_SOURCE on Linux
  * support IN_IFF_TENTATIVE and friends on NetBSD

The last change affects the work flow of dhcpcd as well.
Because the kernel now performs DAD and won't respond to ARP until DAD
completes we can allow the addresses to persist on carrier down.
When the carrier comes back up, the normal DHCP process will take care
of removing/replacing the address as normal.

This allows connections to remain connected if say a switch is rebooted.
Hopefully someone can take the NetBSD change (not net committed will
probably do that later today) and add similar functionality to Linux!
