One-line replacement fix should "fix" the problem: change LOG_INFO to 
LOG_DEBUG and I am confident that it should be in 2.64.

You mentioned that users were griping about other messages.  I do 
believe that there are too many LOG_INFO messages and perhaps some of 
them need to have more to differentiate them and, even more likely, do 
issue many of those messages unless log-dhcp is specified. [otherwise, 
finding the real information in vast quantities of data becomes very 

But, it was also pointed out that too many messages means that you have 
not "tuned" (filtered) you syslog sufficiently.  That is a very real 
point and could have been used for the RTR-ADVERT messages too except 
they really belongs in LOG_DEBUG.
