    dhcpcd: Remove dependency on netifs
    dhcpcd currently depends on being able to bind to the
    unspecified address on the BOOTPC port and DHCPv6-client port
    as well as listen to ICMP6.
    This means that some routes need to be established first and
    the rc.d infrastructure relies on netif being started before that.
    We need to document not to configure an interface to start DHCP,
    but rather just to start dhcpcd and if any extra configuration is
    needed to limit the scope of interfaces it should be done in
    dhcpcd.conf instead. However, the default should be fine.
