Keeping Track of Static DHCP Leases

Static leases don't work that way. A static address is only for a known
single host so the code short circuits a lot of the lease management
stuff. Basically it just hands out a new lease for the given mac each time
it asks. So it never deletes a lease and doesn't need to record it in the
leases file or in memory.

Syslog will show the discover, offer, request and accept messages.
