Determine DHCP-packet type

Hello there!

Has anyone any idea how to determine packet type (DHCPDISCOVER,
DHCPREQUEST, etc) coming to dhcpd? For example, I try to log some info
like this:

log(info, concat("Device type: '", option MOTO.devtype, "'"));

('MOTO' is encapsulated option 43)

Line above logs device type twice: first on DISCOVER, second on REQUEST.
I think it's reasonable to log it only once.

Your kind help will be very much appreciated. :)
