To look into why =DHCP doesn't work, look at devd and the devd rules to
figure out why usb-based interfaces (apparently) aren't being handled.
The way the rc system works these days, DHCP means "do 'ifconfig up' on
the interface and let devd launch dhclient in response to that", and
SYNCDHCP means "the rc system directly invokes dhclient immediately".
