 As a workaround, one can run dhcpcd 8.1.7 or later (from pkgsrc)
 instead of having the kernel process RAs.
 First, remove IP address configuration from rc.conf (ifconfig_vioif0,
 defaultroute, defaultroute6) or remove the /etc/ifconfig.vioif0 file,
 depending which approach is used (using "vioif0" as the interface
 name). IP addresses and the IPv4 default gateway will be configured in
 /etc/dhcpcd.conf instead. A minimal dhcpcd.conf looks like this:
 interface vioif0
 static ip_address=
 static ip6_address=2001:db8::48/64
 static routers=
 While DNS name servers could be configured in /etc/dhcpcd.conf there
 is no way to configure an "options" statement for /etc/resolv.conf in
 dhcpcd.conf. It might still be preferential to have all IP address
 configuration in dhcpcd.conf and the rest in rc.conf.
 To configure name servers and the search list in dhcpcd.conf, add these lines:
 static domain_name_servers=
 To configure name servers, the search list, and options (e.g. to
 enable EDNS) in rc.conf, add these lines:
 dns_options='timeout:1 attempts:5 edns0'
 Both rc.conf and dhcpcd.conf are sources for resolvconf to build the
 actual /etc/resolv.conf file, so information can be divided between
 Enable the dhcpcd service in rc.conf:
 Finally, if net.inet6.ip6.accept_rtadv=1 is set in /etc/sysctl.conf,
 remove it (the default is 0) to instruct the kernel not to process RA
 Rebooting the system is probably easiest for applying all the changes.
