This flaw were found independently also by Richard Johnson of Trellix ATR (richard.johnson), reported few days after me to upstream. Should we wait for CVE assignment or fix it just without it? It were not yet made public as far as I know.

marking OSD4 affected/wontfix; dnsmasq present but dhcp6 not used

I have just checked https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-0934 and it is still reserved only. Could that be updated also?
