This is trivial since we already have support for the entirely
identical (from the kernel's point of view) RDNSS and DNSSL that
also contain opaque data that needs to be passed down to userspace.

As specified in RFC7710, Captive Portal option contains a URL.
8-bit identifier of the option type as assigned by the IANA is 37.
This option should also be treated as userland.

Hence, treat ND option 37 as userland (Captive Portal support)

See:
  https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7710
  https://www.iana.org/assignments/icmpv6-parameters/icmpv6-parameters.xhtml

Applied to net-next.

Any chance we could get this into LTS releases?

I can trivially backport this into Android common kernels - which
would get this into the kernel in time for devices that launch with
Android R, but by getting it into LTS we'd get this support even on
devices that upgrade to Android R (ie. it speeds things up by about 2
years).

Thanks,
Maciej

It's a new feature, not a bug fix.  So no.
