Bug#275360: copy DHCP information into debconf database

Package: netcfg
Severity: wishlist
Tags: d-i


It would be real nice if the config information recieved from the DHCP
server is stored into the debconf database.

This makes sense in this scenario:

* boot the computer for debian-installer (without netcfg/dhcp=false)
* do the install
* get network configuration from DHCP server
* go back to main menu
* do manual network configuration, with the defaults got from DHCP
* continue with the install

The benefits are

* still DCHP as default configuration
* convinent for people who want static configuration
 * no extra commandline parameters
 * reasonable defaults for their environment
