Here's another data point: The Cisco IPv6 stack implements the host behavior
for the O bit, initiating an Information-request exchange when an RA with
the O bit set causes OtherConfigFlag to change from FALSE to TRUE.  The
stack ignores the M bit because there is no code for DHCPv6 address
assignment.  The RA code in the Cisco stack can be configured to send RAs
with the M and O bits cleared or set.
