Description

If an ethernet interface's link goes down and up too rapidly, the 'up' event sent by pfSctl ("linkup start") can be ignored by the rate limiting code that prevents multiple events from being triggered too rapidly.

As such, if someone using DHCP has their link cycle rapidly, then dhclient will be stopped but will never restart.
