Regarding the upstream, patches to support RFC4242 (Information Refresh
Time Option) are integrated into dhcpv6-1.0.22.

TFD for the information refresh time option (updated)
Excuse me, there are some typos in TFD.
I upload correct one.
The dhcpv6 package has been obsoleted by the dhcp package.
Since the dhcp package now includes ipv6 functionality on par (at least) with dhcpv6, and since we have to ship dhcp anyway, we're going to remove the dhcpv6 package from RHEL6.
Because we need to remove the dhcpv6 component from bugzilla, I am moving this BZ to component dhcp.
