dhclient-script: trying harder to set correct default route
The following behaviour has been annoying me for a long time and I had
the appended patch in my local trees for a couple of years.
When dhclient runs dhclient-script after binding to set the new IP address
and default route (among other things), it fails to set the new default route
if there already exists a default route in the system. I get that situation
regularly when restarting dhclient.
Does anyone object to the following patch? I asked Ted Lemon about it
and he said it is OK with him.
