Hmm, mine are working with 4.9-PRERLEASE.  Shooting from the hip, I
think this looks somewhat like the issue I ran into when I enabled
"options BOOTP" on a previously working configuration and it broke
because the syntax of "option root-path" in dhcpd.conf is different with
BOOTP enabled.  If you have any of the BOOTP options, in your kernel,
what does your root-path line look like?
