[kea-dev] Malformed packets returned by Kea

Thanks for looking into this.

For the moment I'm not able to build from the master head (I'm still stuck with the autoconf tools).
That's something I must look into.

When it's resolved, I'll test this again. I'll keep you updated of the results.

I would have an unrelated question:

Is it possible for Kea to silently drop DHCP packets received ?
(by silently I mean that even in DEBUG, nothing is traced)

I'm checking log entries such as the following:
2014-11-06 18:11:24.864 DEBUG [kea-dhcp4.dhcp4/26707] DHCP4_PACKET_RECEIVED DISCOVER (type 1) packet received on interface bond0.102

I've counted 145 received DHCP Discover less than what I expected (out of 11616, according to the network capture).
All these Discover messages are unicast from the same source address, to the same destination address.
I've got quite a lot so I don't know which exactly are lost and why...

I know this is quite vague but if you have any idea it would be most welcome :)
