If it only disabling privsep, I'm totally fine with that, as I never really saw the upsides compared to the added complexity for a network daemaon mainly performing privileged operations.

It's not quite that simple :)

You need dhcpcd-9.3.3 or better and the patch here:
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/-/merge_requests/668

Hopefully merged upstream soon so NetworkManager can enjoy dhcpcd-9.

Thanks a lot for the info. So, is this for privsep setup only, or for dhcpcd-9 in general? I decided I don't need privsep, is this still optional in dhcpcd-9?

dhcpcd-9 in general.
Basically older versions always modified the host in some way or still backgrounded the master processs with the -B option. dhcpcd-9.3.3 changes that and added the --noconfigure option which is why it's now tied to a specific minimum version which makes upstream NetworkManager very happy.

Cool. I'd like to try the patch. I downloaded the patch at

https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/-/commit/ee629f00e8f5d2d9fe2e477ac69ea712f884044d.patch

but it fails to apply on NetworkManager-1.28.0. Is there a version of the patch for NetworkManager-1.28.0?
