Hi List!

dhcpcd-7.2.2 has been released with the following fixes:
  *  DHCP: Ensure dhcp is running on the interface received from
  *  BSD: Link handling has been simplified, however it is expected
     that if an interface supports SIOCGIFMEDIA then it reports
     the correct link status via route(4) for reliable operations
  *  BPF: ARP filter is more robust
  *  BSD and sun: Validate RTM message lengths

This security issue has been addressed
  *  DHCPv6: Fix a potential read overflow with D6_OPTION_PD_EXCLUDE

IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED YOU UPGRADE DHCPCD!

Patch for dhcpcd-7 if you don't want to upgrade to dhcpcd-7.2.2:

dhcpcd-6.11.7 has been released as well, with this in. I have no plans to fix earlier versions, heck you shouldn't even be using dhcpcd-6!

Many thanks to Maxime Villard <max@xxxxxxxxxxx> for discovering this issue.
