   That has nothing to do with DHCP per se and shouldn't give the
   impression that it does.

Actually, it does.  The patch also sets up the routing table.  Which
is impossible to do without doing some serious hacking in pfinet,
adding a new interface, etc, so that one can use `route'.  And this is
needed for DHCP to work.
