I wonder if there is a third way - At the risk of yet another dnsmasq option I note that ‘—-quiet-tftp’ does not yet exist.  ‘—quiet-dhcp’ & friends exist with "Suppress logging of the routine operation of these protocols. Errors and problems will still be logged.” as the accompanying manpage text.  We can then argue as to whether "file not found" is an error/problem that should be reported and for this case “no”, but permission errors “yes"
