Finer checks for a syslog reload need in dhcp client scripts

Feature state



Syslog reloads every time the DHCP lease is renewed, even though the "change hostname via DHCP"
option is turned off in the configuration.

Finer control requested in bugzilla, Bug #466198, by Karl Katzke.

Would be a finer control / finer checks (hostname, ip address changes) desirable to implement?

I second that a better check is needed. I manage a network with 25 servers, all getting "fixed" addresses from our dhcp. This way we manage all ip adresses from our central database.

The current behavior was really annoying and so we have created a small patch for dhcpcd-hook. I would like to upload it somewhere but I am unsure where to proceed.
