ISC DHCP logs of the form:
snprintf (msgbuf, sizeof msgbuf,
"DHCPREQUEST for %s%s from %s %s%s%svia %s",
So I know not what sources you are running that nets 'DHCPREQUEST of '
<null address> will appear whenever piaddr() is called with an
address of zero length. In stock sources, I believe this to be
impossible on that log line ("DHCPREQUEST for ").
