Note that the subnet selection option (118, RFC 3011) is not present
here, nor is the link selection suboption (RFC 3527), both of which
are supported in versions 3.1.0 and later (only RFC 3011 before that).

RFC 2131 stipulates that the server reply to the giaddr contents
("MUST"), which is what's happening here. RFC's 3011 and 3527 both
stipulate to retain this semantic, the option contents are only an
address selection hint.
