Dnsmasq treats client-ids as opaque blobs, with a single exception that
acknowledges the "zero type is string" convention. If a client-id starts
with a zero, then an attempt is made to match against any configured ids
both with and without the zero. So a configuration option like this:
will match (and assign a fixed address to) both client-id
'f' 'r' 'e' 'd'
'/0' 'f' 'r' 'e' 'd'
