MAC address missing from log entry

	Since a few days ago, I'm seeing log entries like this:

dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from  via

	Two things are strange.  The MAC address is missing after 'from', and the
	'via' IPv4 address is not that of a relaying router, but rather of a client.
	I'm seeing a few hundred of these per day, with just a couple of distinct
	IPv4 addreses.

	If any of you have seen this behaviour before, and have insights to share,
	I'ld appreciate it.

	Best regards,
