Re: Bug#768188: Jessie Installer hangs after processing DHCPv6 stateful addressing

dhclient isn't doing that, at least on kfreebsd.  I'm not sure that's
what -1 means.  It will try only once to get a lease, initially.  If
successful it stays running - I assumed it continues to refresh the
lease - and starting in the jessie version, will also give up the lease
on SIGINT (that was #757711).

I think reverting to what we had before reintroduces bugs, and would
break downstream Ubuntu.  I think a workaround should be more
targetted at udhcpc/dhcp6c.
