dhcpxd doesn\'t run correctly in ifup

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
By default, dhcpxd forks itself in the background, even before the
configuration is done. This:
1) doesn\'t play good with initlog -- dhcpxd appears to block on output;
2) doesn\'t fit into the service startup model -- the ifup script should not
return until the interface is either configured, or failed to
configure.Fortunately, there is -w option that prevents dhcpxd from forking.
The timeout in case of dead Ethernet is not prolonged, so I think it should be
OK to wait for a while.
A patch is provided for clarity.
fixed in initscripts-5.49-ipl38mdk.
