Two different IP addresses leased out to the same device

For what it's worth, we run into the same issues, using uboot on some
embedded Linux boards.
Our address pool is large enough, and we modify uboot to send the client
id.. so the problem impact is small.. but having the option to ignore
the client id would be something we would consider using.
Having them treated as 2 separate "hosts" hasn't been something we have
needed, to date.. although I'd rather live with the status quo than loose
the choice to accept or ignore client id.
Ideally we could put the embedded boards into a class and turn on the
"ignore" function for that class.
