[arch-general] dhcpcd-7.0.1-1 seems to break SLAAC

Since upgrading dhcpcd from 6.11.5-1 to 7.0.1-1 my (VLAN) interface
doesn't get an IPv6 address (via SLAAC) anymore. The netctl profile in
With dhcpcd-6.11.5-1 starting this netctl profile results in an IPv4
address being configured via DHCP and an IPv6 address being configured
via SLAAC as expected.
With dhcpcd-7.0.1-1 starting this netctl profile results in an IPv4
address being configured via DHCP, but no IPv6 address is configured.
In both cases, netctl passes dhcpcd the same arguments:
dhcpcd -4 -q -t 30 -L enp0s25.100
so that's probably not the source of the problem.
If I disable IPv4 DHCP (by setting `IP=no' in the above netctl profile),
SLAAC works fine again (but of course then I don't get an IPv4 address
via DHCP anymore...).
Is anybody seeing the same issue? Is really dhcpcd to blame?
TIA & cheers,
This email fills a much-needed gap in the archives.
