dhcpcd-8.1.2 has been released with the following changes:

  • hooks: STOPPED is now run on timeout and exit
  • musl: Fix build
  • Linux: Validate RTM_NEWADDR/RTM_DELADDR messages
  • BSD: Use IP_REVCIF rather than IN_PKTINFO
  • build: address sanitisation is enabled for debug builds
  • build: Improve detection of dlsym requirements
  • DHCP: When rebinding, ensure we have a DHCP ARP state
  • RA: Sort routers when reachability changes
  • RA: Apply hoplimit, reachable and retrans timer values to kernel
  • RA: Warn if advertised MTU > interface MTU
  • OpenBSD: Fix carrier detection for OpenBSD-6.6
  • dhcpcd: Report SSID connection to when we gain carrier
  • DHCP: Fix corruption of address flags when renewing

The last issue was the cause of the recent report about dhcpcd pegging a CPU, so this is quite an important upgrade from 8.1.1
