I've applied this patch to my own FreeBSD 5.4 system and it works
great! It would be great to see this applied. There are several
things that are currently broken that this patch fixes:
1) /etc/rc.d/hostname - Enables us diskless folks to get the client's
hostname from DHCP, rather than overriding the rc.conf (this is
currently the ONLY reason for me to override rc.conf for each
2) /etc/rc.d/resolv - Enables a reasonable /etc/resolv.conf to be
written from the DHCP packet.
Incidentally these features have been in the startup scripts since
2002 (/etc/rc.d/diskless v1.23), but the dhcp.* kenv variables have,
AFAIK, never been set.
Finally, this was also reported as PR kern/43474, back in 2002.
