The default config file of dnsmasq 2.55 reads:

# If you want dnsmasq to provide only DNS service on an interface,
# configure it as shown above, and then use the following line to
# disable DHCP on it.

Which is a contradiction, because dnsmasq can also serve TFTP.  Is
that always offered on all interfaces being listened to, or disabled
along with DHCP on the specified interfaces?  Of course the best would
be adding some general configuration mechanism, like specifying the
services on the interface= lines (with sensible defaults), but
documenting the actual behaviour would be good enough for now. :)
