So, yeah.  Moving the host declarations up into the subnet declaration
forced dhcpd to send the right options.

I still think this feels wrong though and a hack against what appears to
be a dhcpd bug.  Not that I'm convinced that it's not a configuration
error.  I just have a difficult time imagining any configuration that
should result in getting an ip address from one subnet and the options
from another in a shared-network configuration.
