The next dhcpcd release will have support for IPv6 Stable Private
Addresses, RFC 7217.

In summary, this is designed as a replacement interface identifier for
the normal hardware derived one when using SLAAC.
By storing a persistent secret key and combing this with stable
network information such as prefix, ssid (if available), hardware
address and a dad_counter we can then take an interface identifier
from a hash of the above information combined.

The most basic goal is that the host is no longer track-able across
different networks based on their global address, but the address
remains stable on each network.

This has now been imported into -current.
Let me know how it works for you!
