Is it possibly a one or two line diff to change back to isc-dhcp?  If
so, it is possible that it may be considered.  Is that set in netcfg?

Since isc-dhcp was the wheezy default and there are quite a few issues
(including RC ones) stemming from udhcpc, it probably makes a lot of
sense to go back to what's known to work well.
