not udphcpc, but udhcpc (I caused the typo :-)
Ah ok. Well, because I wouldn't want to mix static/dynamic IP address assigning
in a larger network. Admittedly, I haven't implemented that completely
consitent (yet), e.g. the DHCP-option "send-hostname" is missing (this works
for me 'cause I'm practically not assigning IPs from the dynamic pool, thus
having them in static DNS). To get back to your question: if you use s.th. like
"cryptopts=...,ip=192.168.5.2", just that IP will be set, no dhcpc started etc.
What's still missing here is passing the netmask via kernel cmdline.
