Thank you Jens for the reply. Now I see what's going on.
It is not udhcpc, and not the udhcpc script either. It is busybox's
# busybox ip -4 add 192.168.77.10/32 dev dummy0
ip: invalid argument '192.168.77.10/32' to 'ip'
# busybox ip -4 add 192.168.77.10/31 dev dummy0

ip -4 addr add "$ip/$subnet" dev "$interface"
So I'm retitling the bugreport accordingly, and will
