commit b14b1f2b1d92b7f0e605c312fc59c42a48dea7dd

    addr: Don't guess our address if no Address lines are valid
    If at least one Address line is given but invalid, we should not attempt to
    guess our address.
    This commit sends back the "bail" signal so find_my_address() can return an
    error if the requested family doesn't exists but still an Address line is
    found which is likely another family.
    Fixed in #33235
    Related to #33233
