tags 757711 + patch

I'd like to propose this patch to netcfg as a fix for this bug:

I guess that means there are no plans for jessie d-i to use systemd.  So
for now my thoughts are:

* it is desirable to converge on a common DHCP client across all
architectures, but for jessie (having just looked at udhcpc) it is too
late to do this

* for jessie+1, we'll have to wait and see whether systemd finds its way
into d-i:  because if it does, it may take over DHCP client
functionality and non-linux ports may be best keeping
isc-dhcp-client-udeb (udhcpc would go away);  if it does not, it may be
better for udhcpc to be ported to non-linux and converge on that instead
