Yes - dhcpcd properly monitors link state. You link goes up and down,
usually dhcpcd would renew a lease every time it comes up.

You probably get more readable output if you do not let it background,
simply by running:

  dhcpcd -B

Maybe there are driver bugs that kill the link once dhcpcd configures your
interface, then it comes up a few seconds later, dhcpcd renews and configures
your interface, link drops again...
