    dhclient - Add -x and -w and adjust rc scripts
    * Add the -w option which prevents dhclient from exiting on interface
      down.  dhclient will sleep 10 seconds and retry, forever.
    * Add the -x option which kills any running dhclient on the specified
    * Adjust rc.d/dhclient to use the -x option to kill the dhclient instead
      of taking down the interface (which no longer kills it), and also adjust
      the default flags to pass -w.
