I've realized that OSX has the same issue as a client, and so I've been
trying to get this to work on LEDE/OpenWRT.  And all I'm getting from
dnsmasq is grief about the opt-spec being incorrect:

The following:
yields errors about invalid options

And the following:
complains about an invalid ip address

It's v2.76.

But I see from the compile options, that IPv6 may only be partially
IPv6 GNU-getopt no-DBus no-i18n no-IDN DHCP *no-DHCPv6* no-Lua TFTP
no-conntrack no-ipset no-auth no-DNSSEC no-ID loop-detect inotify

And so I'm guessing that with the ipv6 option, RA works, but without
DHCPv6, none of the features like option6 work correctly??
