Menuc will need some kind of timer functionality for this.

I think what Martin proposes here, is probably a good general solution to this
for the mainline ports.  What I did was good enough for "toy" devices, like
PI's or NSLU2's, but I wouldn't use it for amd64.

Curious. Is there a way we can somehow make dhcpd know that we are sysinst, so
a user can put a hint in dhcpd.conf that says "any sysinst gets this IP"?
