 Sorry for the delay in responding, I got side-tracked.

 Yes, and the patch in the existing PR _should_ do that - it invokes
 the failure handler in the same way as the other dhclient failure
 modes.  Unfortunately, there seems to be a separate issue in dhclient
 so that it is not passing the IP address to the failure handler.
