Several times per day, dhclient logs the following:
parse_option_buffer: malformed option dhcp.slp-service-scope (code 79):
option length exceeds option buffer length.
These show up at random times when dhclient isn't in the process of
renewing the local lease, so I assume they're associated with other

It would be nice if dhclient only logged these when a local DHCP
transaction is in progress.
