I just tried this successfully (I had to remove the options 
'--leasefile-ro --dhcp-script=/usr/lib64/libvirt/libvirt_leaseshelper' from
the dnsmasq command line in order to make dnsmasq start).

In order to be certain, I patched and rebuilt libvirt on OpenSUSE factory
using the follow-up patch set. That test was also successful - IP addresses
don't change any more when a VM renews too late.

Please review the patch set. As you can see I added the option only for IPv4
networks. For IPv6, it has a different effect (just setting the priority of
dnsmasq's replies) which isn't necessary here AFAICS.

The option pre-dates the import into dnsmasq repository 
git://thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq.git which occured with v2.48 in June 2009.
According to CHANGELOG.archive, the option was added in dnsmasq v2.16 in 2004.
