Hm. I'm accustomed to using rtsold for SLAAC, but dhcpcd does seem to do a
nicer job. This model of doing everything outside the kernel, rather than
doing it automatically in-kernel as Linux does, seems like the right move.
I've never loved the in-kernel dhcpv4 client anyway--it seems like an
additional attack vector, and bootstrapping with a small in-memory userland
which is jettisoned after NFS is running seems like a perfectly cromulent
solution to the diskless problem.
