[strongSwan] dhcp plugin, isc-dhcp vs dnsmasq

Hi folks,

using isc-dhcp-server 4.3.5 on the peer network my laptop takes just
a second to establish an IPsec connection (dhcp plugin involved, of
course). Using dnsmasq 2.80 it takes at least 3 seconds, maybe 4.

Can anybody reproduce this disadvantage of dnsmasq over isc-dhcp? Do
you think it would help to support rapid commit (rfc4039) in the dhcp

(strongswan is version 5.7.2 on the laptop and on the peers. Debian 9)
