DHCP Log Quieter Patch
This is a very simple patch to dhcpd 2.0b1pl6. All it does is add an
option, -ql (quiet log), which turns off the volumes of information that
dhcpd normally sends to syslog. Errors and warnings are still logged, but
it no longer logs every single client request. It has not been extensively
tested, but it works on my system, serving about 300 clients.
This was written against Red Hat Linux 6.0. I have not tested it on other
platforms. The patch is simple enough that I can't imagine how it would
fail to work anywhere. But things often fail in ways you didn't imagine...
