Bug#109455: dhcp non-functional 3.0.11

Yes, this is a connection through Roadrunner on TimeWarner cable. I have
twice verified with RR that we have 3 useable addresses. In fact, I've
used all three at once in the past and nothing since then has changed.
Something about the kernel, AFAICT, doesn't like Roadrunner's DHCP. I
keep wondering if there is some bit needing flipped in /proc.
dhclient-2.2.x goes to sleep with the message "No DHCPOFFERS received"
or somesuch.
