Subject: [PATCH 0/3] net: ipconfig: improve DHCP timeout handling


this series teaches the ipconfig code to handle a DHCP reply on eth0 even if a
request on eth1 was already sent out.
This is a follow fix to 2513dfb83fc7 ("ipconfig: handle case of delayed DHCP
server") that dropped a late reply.

This makes it possible at all to work with slow DHCP servers at all in some
configurations and improves boot speed in general.

The first patch is not really necessary, it only helps decoding debug messages
when there is more than one device.

Best regards

Uwe Kleine-König (3):
  net: ipconfig: Add device name to debug messages
  net: ipconfig: Support using "delayed" DHCP replies
  net: ipconfig: drop inter-device timeout
