The whole DHCPv6 test message length was incorrectly used as the length
of DHCPv6 options causing the following bad memory access:

$ build/test-dhcp6-client
Assertion 'interface_index >= -1' failed at ../src/libsystemd-network/sd-dhcp6-client.c:129, function sd_dhcp6_client_set_index(). Ignoring.

This seems to be the cause of the bad memory access, please test.
