Good news: I'm not able to reproduce my issue with Julien's patches.

The timeout works reliable again for me and the interface gets an ip
address much more reliable as well (on first try it happens
immediately and worked in all my test cases, on 2nd, 3rd,... try on
the same interface I often see DHCPDISCOVER/DHCPOFFER/DHCPREQUEST in
the dhcp server logs but the interface doesn't take it, though I'm
lacking time to further debug it right now and it's just a minor
issue compared to the original problem).

Thanks a lot for the patches, Julien.
