No objection, one comment: as you are adding the _rtadvd user within
the patch, I would rather end the getpwnam test in fatal() rather than
keeping "the old way" and jump to "setsig".

Most privsep daemons log the missing user and exit right after.

I'm just thinking about upgraders who fail to upgrade passwd/group and mtree, reboot and their IPv6 only network fails to come up. Anyone else with experience of upgrading stuff like this have any opinion?
