The facility to update a DNS using the DHCP lease file was buggy. There
were two bugs. One with improper parsing of the MAC address (segfault)
and the other with improper interpretation of the lease file logic. The
later problem was introducing some slowness in the process and
also useless updates of the DNS.
Updating a DNS from a large lease file should be quick (a second
or two at most). Check it out!
There were glitches for inputing and outputting rules. Linuxconf was
complaining that the kernel could not support those and was
not trying to activate anything. Now things should be much better.
Go for it and test it!
