  When the state of the interface changes rapidly enough (usually due to
  rapid wireless association changes in my experience), there is a race
  where dhclient is in the process of exiting due to the link going down
  when the link coming up causes devd to try and start a new one.  This
  results is the link being up, but no dhclient running.
  Work around this race by checking a second time after a one second delay
  before refusing to start a dhclient instance due to one already being
  MFC after:      1 week
