   dhclient is still required.

   What this patch does is preparing the state of the interfaces so it
   can use as address and broadcast.  When using this patch it
   is possible to port dhclient.

s/port/use, dhclient compiles just fine without this but is unusable
since one cannot broadcast (DHCPDISCOVER) the network for possible
DHCP servers.
