 Making all options work with the "option-nnn" syntax would best be done
 by importing a newer version of the ISC code. For defined option types,
 it's better to use the official names because that way type handling is
 enabled as well.
 The user-class option is not in the dhcp_option_default_priority_list
 array in sbin/dhclient/tables.c. Adding it (DHO_DHCP_USER_CLASS_ID) will
 make the user-class option work. I.E.:
