This flaw were found independently also by Richard Johnson of Trellix ATR (richard.johnson@trellix.com), 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?
