Can you consider committing one more key to dhclient (patch attached).

-w timeout key to specify link wait timeout for dhclient.
Every boot my machine waits for 10 secs for disconnected interface. I
think it as too long. 

Attached patch provide ability to specify timeout for link detection. 
-w0 provides ability to just check link status and do not wait et all.
